Last Week Analysis

With reference to last week forecast, I have mentioned that "Nifty would be a good buy when it reaches 4800 levels and Nifty technical levels suggests more correction ahead towards 4800 level" which came exactly true last week. Last week low point is 4946.45. Many times it happens, just before reaching the strong support level(4800 in this case), many impatient investors will jump into the market for buying. But based on history, there will be one more retesting of 4800 range before Nifty makes a powerfull rally in the mid-term (2 months time).


Last Week Low: 4946.45 (Refer to the strong support level 4800)
Last Week High: 5,204.20



Nifty technical levels suggests one more retesting towards 4800 level before powerful rally.

A good news for long term investors is they can take 5-10% of their investments into stock positions by going long. But do not expect a return in the short term. Currently it is on oversold condition, a nice rally is more likely. Try investing in high dividend stocks. However if you do want to take any risk, then wait for Nifty to touch until 4800.

Nifty is good to STRONG BUY for conservative investors only it encounters a deep correction which I expect it to go all the way down to 4800 which was set on Feb and May 2010. There might be chance for double dip in Indian Market along with world market correction. With double dip, Nifty is expected to touch 2600 levels set on Oct 2008 and Mar 2009. Wait for some more time to get more clues on "double dip on Nifty"


For Speculators and Intraday Players - Go long with Hedging (Option Strap)

I expect the Market to make at least one more retesting of 4800-4900 range, before it makes a powerful upward move.


1. Long on the market and hedge using long put options - known as long position with put hedge.

2. Buy 1X times of put options and 2X time of call option - known as option strap.


Next support level for Nifty is 4800 range suggests taking long position on the market.
