The Nifty50 rose 6.77 percent during the November month F&O expiry. During the same period during S&P 500 has risen 11 per cent from its October lows. We put it in familiar, fundamental terms: investors believe we’ve seen the peak in rates, inflation is slowing, profits are rising, and sentiment is improving.
The recent rally has left some hedge funds with an estimated $43 billion in losses after betting on equities to move lower, Some institutional investors had built up short-bets against companies they thought would buckle amid the higher-rate environment. However, with confidence returning to markets, some of those trades aren’t panning out. Some hedge funds have had to repurchase stocks to cover their short bets as a “short squeeze” pushed share prices even higher.

Alternative Investment Portfolio Performance
This month we have explored 2 platforms :
We have invested a small amount in 13 karat and will be sharing monthly reviews. I expect the platform to do well as it is backed by Cashe and utilizes its credit underwriting and borrower pool. Cashe has been in business for more than 5 years has had a very low NPA and has shown good profitability.
Hecta is a platform focused on repossessed properties. It is a great platform for someone looking to purchase a real estate property for investment or ownership as some of the properties can be purchased at a 20-30% discount from the market rate.
*Updated NPA Details
To provide more comprehensive information on deals performance on platforms, I have collected the performance of multiple users of these platforms and created an NPA statistic. The benefit of this is that even though my deals are going well in a platform, this will give the overall performance of the other deals on the platform that I might not have invested in.
Please note NPA does not mean that a platform is bad. NPA can be due to 2 factors
- Higher vintage or transaction volume
- High yield or higher risk opportunity
Investors should evaluate the NPA along with Gross returns on the platform to make investment decisions.
Eg a platform with a 20% return and 2% NPA is better than a 10% return and 1% NPA.
|Platform||Returns||RD NPA||Total NPA|

Bitcoin’s bull run has sustained during the last couple of months. My crypto portfolio is now higher than Bitcoin’s peak value because I had brought more crypto when the market was going through a prolonged winter.
On November 28, Binance.US announced the resignation of Changpeng Zhao, the founder and former CEO of Binance, as chairman of the Binance. The move comes after Zhao pleaded guilty to federal charges imposed by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) and agreed to pay a $4.3 billion fine. In the same case, Binance agreed to pay $4.3 billion settlement charges for failing to adhere to anti-money laundering (AML) regulations and violating sanctions law.
Interestingly unlike in 2021 when crypto crashed after Sam Bankman’s news, the market did not show much nervousness indicating more maturity.

The market took a complete reversal in November and NSE reached an all-time high! The mid-cap sector is also on fire.
Indian stock market achieved a milestone, touching $4 trillion in market capitalization (m-cap) for the first time. The optimism on Dalal Street has its roots in the way India is uniquely placed among global economies. At a time when the global economy is facing the twin problem of high inflation and slowing growth, with even the world’s growth engine China not showing a sign of recovery, India has taken center stage. Many global agencies have upped the FY24 GDP forecast for India and several global brokerages retained India ‘overweight’ in their model portfolios despite strong gains.
However, when everybody is greedy it’s good to show some restraint and avoid adding large positions at these levels.
Our Algo and Manual Option trading gave a 1.3% return in November. Due to large intraday moves, it was tough to make money in non-directional strategies. Investors who are just starting algo trading can explore tradetron as it requires a minimum learning curve and marketplace to copy traders.
