Thu, 23 Sep 09:30 am

Asian share markets are trading higher today, supported by positive news from struggling developer China Evergrande Group.

However, Evergrande's future still remains on edge as a major test awaits today when US$83.5 m in dollar-bond interest payments become due.

The Hang Seng is up 0.7% while the Shanghai Composite is trading higher by 0.6%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices ended sharply higher on Wednesday as investors took in stride the latest signals from the Fed, including clearing the way for the central bank to reduce its monthly bond purchases soon.

Both, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq jumped 1%.

Back home, Indian share markets have opened on a positive note, following the trend on SGX Nifty.

The BSE Sensex is trading up by 445 points. Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty is trading higher by 142 points.

Axis Bank and Tata Steel are among the top gainers today. TCS, on the other hand, is among the top losers today.

Both, the BSE Mid Cap index and the BSE Small Cap index have opened higher by 1%.

Watch this Before Investing Your Money in EV Stocks

On Monday, we revealed this massive 15x opportunity in electric vehicles.

And also shared the details of 3 EV stocks to ride this mega opportunity.

Now, these are not typical EV stocks. Instead, these are what we call the backdoor EV stocks.

Barring power, all sectoral indices are trading in green with stocks in the realty sector and metal sector witnessing most of the buying.

The rupee is trading at 73.83 against the US$.

Gold prices are trading down by 0.6% at Rs 46,383 per 10 grams.

Meanwhile, silver prices slipped 1% to Rs 60,582 per kg.

Gold slipped today after the US Federal Reserve signalled easing its monthly bond purchases by next year and a sooner-than-expected interest rate hike.

This in turn, could increase the opportunity cost of holding gold.

As gold is often considered a hedge against higher inflation, a Fed rate hike would dull its appeal.

Speaking of the precious yellow metal, how lucrative has gold been as a long-term investment in India?

The chart below shows the annual returns on gold over the last 15 years...

As you can see, barring just two years - 2013 and 2015, gold has delivered positive returns in 13 of the last 15 years.

Speaking of stock markets, Brijesh Bhatia explains why he is bullish on power stocks, in his latest video for Fast Profits Daily.

Tune in to the below video to find out more:

The company intends to use the net proceeds of the issue for purchase of machinery and equipment, incremental working capital requirements, repaying certain borrowings, and general corporate purposes.
