We are 8 billion strong! Yes, the world population hit the 8 billion mark this week. This obviously led to a laughing riot on Twitter. Let’s check out some hilarious tweets before we get to our Weekly Stock Market update.

8 billion strong and you are still looking for the right investment advice? It’s high time you follow Arihant Capital on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter join our free Telegram channel for advice you can truly count on.
Let’s get started with this Weekly Stock Market update. Tech companies after being the flag bearer of growth, are now in trouble. There are massive layoffs in big tech with Amazon being the latest in announcing layoffs after Meta and Twitter.

Twitter’s birds leaving the nest is more due to a leadership change, are the rest of the companies this foreshadowing recessionary trends ahead? The head of WTO certainly believes that some major economies will face a ‘real’ recession after the chaotic turn of events following the “Russia-Ukraine war“.

Meanwhile in India, the Indian benchmark indices ended the week with small losses. Nifty closed at 18,307 down 42 points (or 0.23%), whereas Sensex closed 0.21% down at 61,663 after briefly touching its all-time high as speculated last week. We talked in detail about the resilience of the Indian markets here, and it seems the growing demographics and consumer sentiments are furthering our belief in India’s resilience. Even FPIs have invested more than ₹30,000 cr in Indian equities in Nov so far.

Recession or no recession, it’s time to keep investing for the uncertain times ahead. But be careful who you listen to for financial advice: SEBI is planning to bring all “influencers” under its lens.

A dip below this, Nifty can test the 18,050 and 17,900 levels.
