21st Century's BIGGEST Revolution is Happening... Are You in?

The biggest revolution of the 21st century is Electric Vehicles.

But let me warn you that the usual way of investing in EVs may lead you to more trouble than profits.

After spending thousands of manhours on research, we've found a hidden way to profit from this EV revolution... which holds far more potential than buying regular big-name EV stocks.

And we're going to reveal it all at our exclusive online event.

Gold prices were muted in Indian markets today despite positive global cues. On MCX, gold futures were trading 0.06% lower at Rs 47,231 for 10 grams.

In global markets, gold prices gained after the US government reported lower than expected inflation data and the dollar eased against other currencies.

Moving on to stock-specific news...

Among the buzzing stocks today is ONGC.

Shares of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) rose over 4% on the exchanges after the company said it is looking to buy out Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services' (IL&FS') stake in Mangalore Special Economic Zone (MSEZ).

IL&FS holds 50% equity in the company.

The deal is likely to be concluded at fair value after ONGC's attempt to buy out the shadow lender's stake in the joint venture (JV) at deep discount failed.

ONGC currently holds 26% equity in the company, while Karnataka Industrial Area Development Corporation holds 23%.

ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals (OMPL) and Kanara Chamber of Commerce & Industry together hold 1% equity in MSEZ.

In March 2019, ONGC had invoked an 'event of default' clause and sought to buy IL&FS' stake at a deep discount. IL&FS contested the claim on grounds that MSEZ was its green bucket company which had no payment default or overdue.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while. Spotting this correctly can help you save money.

If you're interested in trading and want to know how you can use this pattern, you can read about it in one of the editions of Profit Hunter here: It's When You Sell that Counts
