The podcast is back! 🎧

Two questions from the global context –

  • Are the recent problems – GME, Greensill, and Archegos – signs of a damaged financial system that is so terribly fragile that a slightly bigger disaster can easily crush us?
  • Like what Covid has done to the world’s health system, are there more hidden risks in our financial system that can trigger a repeat of 2008?

In this episode, Deepak and Shray explore what’s happened in the US over the past few months, and examples of hidden leverage within India – Karvy, Zee, DHFL, and Harshad Mehta.

The curious case of smallcase

Smallcase is a platform that lets you buy a basket of stocks, track its performance, and essentially helps you run an investment portfolio of sorts. Which is pretty cool!

However, whether you are evaluating subscribing to a smallcase or believe you have found the best smallcase to invest in, here are five things new investors should definitely consider.


Slack: Talking everything markets and a little more!

All premium subscribers get access to Premium posts, Model Portfolios, and the exclusive slack community. But a few of us miss out on checking the third one i.e the members’ community. This one is especially for them.

In this post, we have reflecting on what the Capitalmind community is all about and how it has helped him (and many others) get better. Better not just at investing or trading, but at everything else that involves some decision-making or even skill-building.


Slaying it on slack 😎

We bring you the most insightful discussions from our slack community
