Wow, I can't believe the year has gone by so fast. If 2020 was shit, 2021 was just as bad, but we mostly coped with the uncertainty.
In fact, if you look at the markets, it was actually a stellar year, both here in India and in the US. So what does 2022 have install for us?
Well, one of the lessons I've imbibed is... Amor Fati, which is latin for 'Love Fate'.
Once you accept things as they are, you can navigate them better. This is part of stoic teachings and something that really hits hard when you think about it.
Anyways, as far as investments go. I didn't publish much of what was being done, because I was weary of those opportunities. And sometimes it takes a while to realise if an investment is doing good or not. Well, it's fair to say... so far so good.
I even went to the extent of drafting everything about those opportunities, but not publishing the details. The time will come, and I'm not in it just so I can publish something for advertisement income (hey our YouTube channel is hardly updated, though take a look for yourself).
On the contrary, if you're a member, you get to see what exactly I've invested in and some of the logic behind it. More importantly, you'll get to see the progress, as I write about what happened to older investments, you see it all – good and bad.
Take for example, our Motilal Oswal Nasdaq Mutual Fund, well that's done quite well. And if you know me enough, you'll know I hate mutual funds!
Last year, I also took the decision to talk more about Alternative Investments and so you'll see more of that this year. Some investment opportunities sprung up and got sold out in 4 hours, yes 4 freaking hours! Even if I published the details here, it would have been difficult for you to grab those. However, more are coming up and there's plenty to write about. And this is just India we're talking about.
There is so much on the inside, thats worth the membership. So if you haven't joined yet, you can get 20% off today with our New Year offer.
If you're just looking for the free stuff, you can still become a free member, no charge, no obligation and continue to get updates on general investing & trading.
Given that I've spent the last one month decoding the Indian Tax code for personal income tax and corporate income tax, I might be touching upon that if more people ask about it.
I'm really excited for 2022, probably the same feeling we all had for 2020, but this time, pray that we're a bit more mentally tough and everyone takes care of their health! Here's an interesting quote my father gave me...
If you're healthy, you have 100 wishes. If you're sick, you only have 1 wish.
May your 2022 be far the best year ever. God Bless...
