No crash, correction, or pandemic can STOP This..

At last, it's happening...

Right here in India...three hidden mega-trends are converging for the first time ever to trigger an economic boom of unparalleled proportions.

A boom so powerful - no crash, no correction, and no pandemic can STOP India from becoming the next economic superpower...

And those who take advantage of this mega shift could potentially generate massive wealth for themselves and their families in the long run.

We are talking about  potential 1,000% gains...and perhaps even more over the long term.

But trust me, people who pass this opportunity will regret their decision in the years and decades to come...

So, if you want to save yourself from potential downsides of this mega shift...

...and instead, leverage on it for potential windfall gains...

Join us on 15th April at my special event...

We'll reveal the full details there.

Nasdaq Futures are trading down 113 points (down 0.8%) while Dow Futures are trading down by 150 points (down 0.5%)

The rupee is trading at 73.04 against the US$.

Gold prices are trading down 0.4% at Rs 46,060 per 10 grams.

Gold struggled in Indian markets for the fourth day in a row and remained near 8-month lows. On MCX, gold futures were up 0.1% to Rs 46,297 per 10 grams.

Note that the precious metal has been under pressure since the start of this year amid hopes of faster global economic recovery and rising US bond yields. As compared to August highs of Rs 56,200, gold is down about 18% or about Rs 10,000.

In global markets, gold prices were flat today but were on track for their second straight weekly decline as rising US Treasury yields dented the appeal of bullion which does not pay any interest. Spot gold was flat and is on track for 0.6% decline for the week so far.

Moving on to stock specific news...

Among the buzzing stocks today is DHFL.

DHFL said that it has received no objection from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and has filed an application with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) for submission of the resolution plan of Piramal Capital & Housing Finance.

The resolution plan has been approved by the Committee of Creditors (CoC).

In November 2019, the RBI had referred DHFL, the third-largest pure-play mortgage lender, to the NCLT for insolvency proceedings. It was the first finance company to be referred to NCLT by the RBI using special powers under Section 227 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC).

Prior to that, the company's board was superseded and R Subramaniakumar was appointed as the administrator. He is also the resolution professional under the IBC.

The company is being investigated by the ministry of corporate affairs from December 2019 through the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO). The Enforcement Directorate is also probing the company in connection with loans given by it to certain borrowers.

The financial creditors have claimed an outstanding worth Rs 870 billion from DHFL.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile stay tuned to more updates from this space.

At the time of writing, DHFL share price was trading up by 4.8% on the BSE.
