Their chances of earning a more than two-fold return were brighter than the possibility of losing money.

While FY21 witnessed historic high auto fuel margins, analysts believe it is likely to rise further over the next few years.

Fed signals 2 rate hikes in 2023… US Fed held interest rates near zero, but signalled they expect two increases by the end of 2023, pulling forward the date of liftoff as the economy recovers. The central bank held the target range for its benchmark policy rate unchanged at zero to 0.25% — where it’s been since March 2020 — and pledged to continue asset purchases at a $120-billion monthly pace until “substantial further progress” had been made on employment and inflation.
Burry claims big bubble in stocks… Michael J Burry, the famed investor who predicted the collapse of the housing market bubble in the US in 2008 and had a movie made about his legendary short position, is now ringing the church bells for another disaster. “People always ask me what is going on in the markets. It is simple. Greatest speculative bubble of all time in all things. By two orders of magnitude,” Burry tweeted late on Tuesday.
Borrowing costs begin to rise… Borrowing costs in India could begin to harden, albeit marginally, after trader-focused lender Karur Vysya Bank took the lead Tuesday, increasing benchmark rates about 20 basis points.

Amara Raja new plan fails to impress analysts… Amara Raja Batteries’ decision to enter the Lithium-Ion batteries segment is a welcome step to plug the technology gap in its business model. However, in the absence of details on investment outlay and possible global technology partner, it may not lead to any immediate stock re-rating. Analysts believe that the scale of investment for Li-Ion cell manufacturing along with the capital requirement of its existing core business of lead-acid batteries may stretch Amara Raja’s balance sheet.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the US is due to take a call on whether to approve or deny Bitcoin ETFs. At least nine applications for Bitcoin ETFs are said to be collecting dust at SEC and clients are baying to buy crypto funds, because they feel that’s the best way they can cash in on the unrelenting clamour for these digital tokens. SEC has already delayed its decision once earlier this year. Anticipating an adverse verdict, some firms are releasing or planning ‘Bitcoin adjacent’ products — like Invesco’s pair of funds packed with crypto-linked equities — to skirt regulators’ refusal.
