If you are a regular investor in equity, mutual funds etc, another good news is that the government is reportedly looking to simplify the capital gains tax regime.

Pink slip in Meta and Twitter

We covered the possible layoffs in our last newsletter, this week we know that Musk has fired many of his staff and has warned others of tough times ahead. Even Meta has fired a whopping 11,000 employees but seems to have done it more gracefully.

Talking about tough times ahead, the US midterm elections remained too close to call, which left investors feeling jittery. While cooler-than-expected inflation numbers gave some much-needed respite to the markets and many of the indices climbed and 2 of the US indices had the best day in 2 years in the hopes that it is time the Fed will pump the brakes on the hikes.

Even the Indian indices showed cheer on positive sentiment, the benchmark indices climbed up and are just 1% shy of their all-time high. Nifty closed the week at 18,350 up 1.28% from last week with an all-time high of 18,604, Sensex is also pretty close to its high of 62,245 by closing at 61,795 up 1.39% from last week.
