Many crypto exchanges have paused bitcoin withdrawals which lead to a sharp fall in the entire crypto market.

We have seen that 2022 is the year of market correction. All investors have held their breath hoping that the correction will end soon and that their investments will finally pay them back.

But has the time finally come? Have the markets corrected?

Watch this video from Brijesh Bhatia to know more.

Let us now talk about a public sector stock that has taken down like a hot brick in June.

Power Grid has been an investor's friend for a long time. This share exhibits all the positives of a public sector stock but avoids all the negatives.

Like it pays consistent dividend regularly. But it's share price is not as volatile or as unpredictable as other PSUs stocks.

Power Grid's operational performance is also very impressive. As of April 30 2022, it has 172,557 km long transmission lines. It also has 265 sub-stations and 476,772 MVA transformation capacity.

It's an Indian PSU that is not limited by the boundaries of India. The Power Grid has international clients. It's present in 21 foreign countries and has more than 25 international clients. It provides transmission-related consultancy services to more than 150 domestic clients.

Regular dividends and growing share price have kept the investors happy. Even in 2022, the share price did not see a major fall.

However, from June the scenario has started changing. Power Grid's share fell around 9% in June. But this looks like it is a movement to remain in step with the market.

It remains to be seen how the shares of the company perform in the coming months.

Moving on to news from the steel sector, Tata Steel is among the top buzzing stocks today.

Steel major Tata Steel imported about 75,000 tonnes of coal from Russia in the second half of May, weeks after pledging to stop doing business with Russia.

In April this year, Tata Steel had said all its manufacturing sites in India, the UK and the Netherlands had sourced alternative supplies of raw materials to end its dependence on Russia, adding it was taking a conscious decision to stop doing business with Russia.

Despite this statement, sources said that in May, Tata Steel shipped about 75,000 tonnes of PCI coal, used in steelmaking, from Russia's Vanino port.

Interesting to note that the deal to import coal from Russia was made before the company's announcement to cut business ties with Russia.

Note that Tata Steel was the only major steelmaker to announce it would stop doing business with Russia. Other Indian steelmakers have been importing bulk quantities of coal from Russia.

Note that metal stocks have fallen this year after the decision to levy export taxes among other reasons.

Speaking of metal stocks, India's #1 trader Vijay Bhambwani recently recorded a video discussing whether it makes sense to hold on to metal stocks right now.

Metal prices have crashed. But what about metal stocks? Should you hold or sell them?

Vijay answers all these questions in the below video:
