Speaking of stock markets, in our latest episode of Investor Hour Podcast, India's #1 trader Vijay Bhambwani joins Rahul Goel to talk about his views on stock market, currencies, his trading strategy, and more...

In the podcast, Vijay talks about the volatility in the benchmark indices. Instead of trading for short-term profits of 5-10%, he thinks it's a far better idea to wait for the big profit trades. These are longer-term trades which can pay out anywhere between 50-80%.

Tune in here:

In news from the power sector, as per an article in The Economic Times, the power ministry has begun deliberations on bringing electricity under Goods and Services Tax (GST), as a recent study it conducted showed that this would reduce per unit cost of power to generation, distribution and transmission companies by 17 paise per unit, leading to big savings for consumers.

UNLOCKED: Up to 3x More Gains During the Corona Crisis...

The article stated that government is weighing pros and cons of bringing electricity under GST.

The ministry has asked NTPC and the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) to study and report the benefits and challenges.

The article stated that the cumulative per unit input costs will be reduced by 17 paise per unit for generation, transmission and distribution companies, as input tax credit will be available to them. The per unit tariff to consumers would come down and benefit the power sector as a whole.

Electricity prices for Indian industries are one of the highest in the world as states charge high tariffs to subsidize agricultural and residential consumers.

All power companies have been supporting GST on electricity, citing lower tariffs to end consumers including industrial units, which in turn may boost the demand for power in the country.

A government official said that high-cost, low-quality power supply is rendering industrial units uncompetitive and adversely affecting the government's Atmanirbhar Bharat campaign at a time when the country's installed generation base is highly underutilized.

Data shows that India's thermal power plants operated at 53% capacity in July this year against 55% a year ago.

How the above developments pan out remains to be seen.

Speaking of the power sector, it is interesting to note that the power exchanged in India is about 4.5% of the overall power production, as can be seen in the chart below:

This is abysmally low by global standards. This shows that there is big upside in the market share of power exchanges in India.

As per Tanushree Banerjee, India's power sector is currently in transition. It is driven by increasing reliance on short-term contracts and electricity spot markets. This transition to the short-term market is happening due to quickly evolving industry dynamics.

Tanushree believes the Indian power sector will see a surge in spot power volumes due to certain factors.

Last month, Tanushree recommended a high quality stock from this space. Subscribers can read the report here (requires subscription).
