Last Week Analysis - Market tested its 200 days EMA

US Treasuries (TLT) topped 132.21 by mid of last week and this created no room for treasuries to rally further. On Thursday July 26, 2012, comments from Mario Draghi, President of European Central Bank during the conference at the Olympics, helped to push the US and Euro Markets higher. It is considered as a short covering rally and bear market rally. There is no true signs of growing economy.


Even though Nifty gained over the last trading day, it just helped to regain its support level of its 200 days EMA. It reconfirms that developing and emerging markets are leading the worldwide downturn.


There is a big disappointing earnings and outlook from facebook, sent its stocks intra-week lower to 22.28. But still FB is overvalued and its fair value should be around 5 dollars. Even after plummeting by close to 40% from its IPO price of 38, its P/E ratio is at 127.02. We can expect Facebook to trade in teens very soon, with in the next quarter.


US will hold presidential elections on Nov 06, 2012

With respect to US long term treasury prices, TLT closed today at 128.48 which is little loss for this week compared to the last week close of 130.4. However TLT reached its all time high point of 132.21. It is the perfect time to initate short position US treasuries. The upside is very much limited on US treasuries and downside is huge.

Last Week Low: 5032.40
Last Week High: 5164.20
