BEAR MARKET RALLY – 13/03/2009.
Just as a rising tide lifts all boats; the U.S. market played the role of the rising tide and lifted all global markets along with it. The Indian market was no exception and caught up with the global rally, even though it was a truncated three day week.
BEAR MARKET RALLY?
The question on the mind of every trader and investor in market is whether it is only a Bear market rally or the start of a new Bull trend. The answer is we are still in a long term Bear market, but are witnessing a short term Bear market rally. The reason behind this rally is the surge in the global markets led by the U.S. market. The U.S. market has bounced almost 10% from its lows in the past week. The rub off of the rise in U.S. market was felt in the Indian market and as a result our market also rallied by almost 4% to 5% from previous week’s close. The rise in our market was mainly due to short covering and not due to any renewed buying. Bear market rallies are fast and furious and so swift that many people don’t identify until it is over.
