Last Week Analysis - Stocks are setting lower lows and lower highs

Nifty was down by 0.48% for the last week and still it was up by 15% for year to date.


FYI - France will hold presidential elections on April 22 and May 6, followed by general elections in June.
US will hold presidential elections on Nov 06, 2012.


For the last 3 weeks, Nifty was trading in negative territory and currently emerging markets are leading the developed countries. Stocks have set lower lows and lower highs compared to earlier week also signaling the free fall. Greedy hedge fund managers keep betting more and more on the market direction to create a bubble. They will not hesitate to stop betting until Nasdaq reaches 3,000.00, Dow Jones reaches 13,000.00 and S&P 500 reaches 1,400.00. It is nothing but to touch the fancy number before it moves down significantly and this is the time when the Nasdaq Tech bubble will burst.

Some people think that the economic problems in Euro Zone is only for Europe but it is not true. When a country/region experiences a slow down it will have domino effect on other countries very quickly as the world market is currently tightly connected.


With respect to US long term treasury prices, TLT closed today at 115.97 which is about 1 % down for the week compared to last week close of 117.14. US treasury is now too late to short and too early to buy. But if you are short on US treasuries, you can liquidate your short position. US treasuries (Ticker: TLT) would bottom near 100 - 103 and TLT upside would be maximum of 125-130. Note that even though market rallied for the last two weeks, TLT is flat in the same period. Most knowledgable investors had already started moving towards US treasuries.


Last Week Low: 5206.40
Last Week High: 5344.50


It is time to liquidate all of your long positions on Nifty and create new short position. We do not have any history of running into bull market crossing over 200 days EMA in one shot. It has to go through a couple of retesting. Still market has to go through lots of bad news from Euro Zone, downgrades, unemployment, etc.

If you are conservative investors, hold currency or indian T-Bills rather than creating short position on Nifty. You can take long positions on Nifty between 4000 and 4500. Nifty might experience a double dip in Indian Market along with world market correction in the long term (about one and half years). 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"
