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"
