Archives : DEEPAWALI CORRECTION. 08/11/2007

Just when the market was going well, every one on the street started whispering about 21000 by Deepawali and here we are at 19000 levels, just a day before Deepawali. Market has a mind of its own and has a tendency to surprise when least expected. The markets are now correcting and hence every rise will be met with a selling pressure. So short term traders or positional traders should lighten their positions at every rise and only re-enter when the market resumes its upward journey.


US economy is on the brink of a major recession, which will affect global markets. The global engines will have to be China and India. If the US economic data continues to be weak, then the Fed might have to go back on its stance and induce further round of rate cuts to breathe life in the dying US economy. Another point to ponder here is the inflation figure coming in at a record 5 year low well below 3%, this might set the ball rolling for having a rate cut in the Indian market. If this rate occurs, and it coincides with US fed rate cut, then there will be a deluge of dollars. I don’t want to hazard a guess about where will the Sensex reach if these events occur in the near future.


The Darlings of the traders RNRL and RPL got butchered this week and lot of traders lost lot of money. The darling were butchered mercilessly and RNRL fell from a high of 195 to a intra week low of 135. Whereas RPL reached 294 touched intra week low of 202. The mark to market losses unnerved most of the traders as the losses mounted and the margin increased simultaneously. The fact that RPL got under the futures curb, didn’t exactly help the matter.



Sensex closed on Thursday at 19058. It was unable to clear the previous high of 20238 and broke the support of 19255. The Sensex is undergoing a correction of the rise from 17171 to 20238. The correction levels are placed at 19066-18705-18243. The Sensex touched a low of 18917 and closed just above 19000. The short term trend has turned down and hence every rise will be met with selling pressure. The trendline support is at 18834-18453. The trendline resistance is at 19416-20414. Generally the Sensex has bounced from the support of 30DMA last time around and this time it is at 18630. So support is expected around the zone of 18800-18453. The medium term Sensex technicals will remain positive as long as it is above 17510. For the week ahead resistance is at 19416-19678-20009. Support is at 18834-18630-18453-18343.


Nifty closed on Thursday at 5698. It made a low of 5650 and returned after finding support there. That was the first retracement level. The Nifty is undergoing a correction of the rise from 5070-6012. The correction levels are placed at 5652-5541-5430. The trendline support is at 5454 and 5312. The trendline resistance is at 6030. The Nifty found support in the last fall at the 30 DMA which is now at 5503. The medium term outlook will stay positive as long as it stays above 5133. Nifty OI PCR is 1.16. This indicates lack of short positions and so when we have a fall, the market will not find cushion and the fall can be drastic. 5900 and 6000 strikes calls have seen lot of addition of OI, which suggests the Nifty may face resistance at those levels. For the week ahead, resistance is at 5861-5957-6012. Support is at 5650-5541-5454-5312.
