In an exclusive interview to CNBC-TV18, Woods, that talked about a series of subjects, stated India looked readied to record perhaps best incomes growth in Asia and also could be among the best-performing markets like in 2003 as well as 2007.
He continues to be favorable on the energy fields but likewise sees high oil costs as a temporary risk to Indian markets. Right here is what he said to CNBC-TV18 on crypto, crude as well as power market:
‘ Fascinating, lasting tale’
Wood said firm by the Federal Get was likely to accelerate bitcoin’s outperformance in contrast to various other cryptocurrencies, as the world’s biggest crypto was a shop of value, comparable to gold.
Other preferred cryptos like Ethereum as well as Solana belonged to high-beta tech supplies, which require very high risk and also volatility, said Wood.
The monetary tightening by Fed would likely affect risk-prone fields like tech as well as biotechnology, considering that they are majorly lasting development stories that come with a lack of profit in the brief run.
Crypto, for him, is disruptive in the long run– the following five-10 years– and is, not a one-play, single-year act.
” Crypto has the prospective to disintermediate the banking system with DeFi and blockchain modern technology given that individuals are already offering and obtaining over the system,” he said, describing the so-called decentralized finance.
Favorable on metaverse

Nonetheless, given the remarkable policy U-turn undertaken by the US reserve bank, a sensation Woods claimed he had actually not observed in his career before, he recommended selling. “If you’re an investor, you ought to be selling rallies as well as development supplies,” Timber stated.
Huge on energy area
In view of the substantial supply restraints that torment the worldwide market, Wood remains to be big on power stocks. “If the ongoing Russia-Ukraine scenario resolves or fixes itself, I would recommend individuals to add direct exposure to power stocks,” he said
Wood claimed the oil market can rise greatly if the “globe reopened”.
Singling oil as the “most significant risk” to the Indian market, the noteworthy strategist advised capitalists to “hold energy-related supplies to hedge that danger”.
The very best executing S&P sector in 2021 was power, contrary to conventional assumptions, he stated.
India faced a danger comparable to 2006 and also specialists are stressed that the nation is conquering down a comparable path with international capitalists participating in hostile selling.
The step might “certainly go against India” in the short-term, said Timber, because “emerging market financiers will be lured to take money out of India since it looks expensive due to the Fed tightening up danger”.
Consequently, they would want to place even more money right into China due to China’s relief. Likewise, the Chinese market is far more protective about Fed tightening up than India.
“The Chinese markets undertook to tighten last year, so if markets right on Fed tightening up concerns internationally, China will certainly undoubtedly, outperform,” Wood claimed.
