Nifty Weekly Technical Outlook for 02 Nov’15

Tough challenge for small time traders…

From last Friday NSE has increased the lot size of most of the contracts, resultant we need to pay higher margin then what we use to pay. Still I don’t understand what is the logic behind increasing the lot size of Nifty from 25 to 75 (not 50 which was earlier when Nifty was trading near 6000-7000 levels). I feel it’s one of Freebie marketing strategy of NSE, wherein once trader get used to with trading in Nifty, now by force they are asked to pay higher margin or stay away. I was talking with couple of my trader friends and they are really feeling the pain of such move, and at the same time if we see condition of brokers (which is deteriorating day by day), they are further tensed about the business. There are some pros as well, where overleveraged positions by default will remain in control. Anyway, we need to stay in market and will be dictated not only by market movement but by this regulators as well. Lets analyze how to approach market in this week.

The week passed by…

It was disappointing week for longs and shorts must have enjoyed the ride, as in all five days markets closed in red. At the same time it was really tough time for intraday traders as market corrected but if we see Intraday opportunity remained almost nil, one need to carry the position then and then only one would have made money. Week on week basis Nifty was down by almost 230 points.

  • Technically once again Nifty drift below its 200-DEMA, which is not so healthy sign, and expected Golden crossover of its 50-DEMA also came to halt for now.
  • Nifty retraced almost 38% of rally started from 7540 level to 8336 level, if fails to hold here then 62% retracement support comes near 7850 levels.
  • NF has filled the gap of 8060-8225 and closed above it, and on moving above weekly high, it will target for another unfilled gap near 8322-8360 levels.
  • As depicted in attached chart 14-period RSI has trendline support above 40-level, lets see whether falling momentum got arrested or not.
  • In the last week biggest surprise or disappointment came in from AXISBANK, so as BANKNIFTY which dragged the market lower. However chart structure of BNF and NF remains moreover same.
  • Barring CNXPHARMA most of the Indices gave up their gains, while CNX PHARMA managed to hold little bit, so one may expect some positive momentum in the coming week, which may be used for Index rebalancing.

Derivative Insights

  • In the month of October FII’s have infused almost 3000 crore of capital, whereas DII’s remained net seller to the same tune if we just exclude last Friday’s buying which 1560 crore, so DII’s sold 1509 crore. The game changed in last week of the month were FII’s taken out 1289 crores from the market otherwise their net figure would have been much larger.
  • Week on week basis FII’s have not only reduced long & short position in Index  future but also in options as well.
  • I think FII’s data in respect to Index & Options needs to be reviewed in the coming week, because change in lot size needs to be adjusted. So we’ll be keeping watch over next week.

Last week’s reviewIn the last week I had not released the report but let me put previous week’s commentary here- allow NF to hold and sustain above 8250, if it does then stay put with long position and target for 8325-8350 levels.. area of confluence between 8350-8400, and my anticipation is that, this area will not be taken out so easily, so in the first go I would prefer to take the profit on table, and then evaluate for next move.

Current chart structure indicates underlying weakness, and again Bihar Election result will remain in focus. Nonetheless, immediate support for Nifty is placed at 8025-8050 levels which happens to be 38% retracement of last up move and where again NF will get some psychological support as well. What if it’s taken out, then I will be watching for 7850 to 7720 area. Look for long position if NF sustains above 8120 levels and again game changes on close above 8250 levels. As supports are placed near to current level, I don’t find lucrative to go short in the market, look for short on closing or sustenance below 8000 mark, keeping stop loss near 8050. At the same time long only above 8120.

Nifty Weekly Technical Outlook for 19 Oct’15

Nifty above its major average…

After almost fourty days of dilemma once again market is pouring hope in to the minds of trader. You must be thinking why I am writing this-yesterday one of my friend called me to confirm my view, first question was are we ready to for new highs?  And I was little shocked, and he gave one another shock is it possible by January or max by February? I understood that he is not asking, but he is conveying his own view, and I answered him what is your gut feeling, he said it is very much possible. In the hindsight I was thinking that just few days back traders were searching reasons of collapse, then what can come to rescue the fall, after stoppage again hope of revival and reasons to push the market higher. Its not the objective way, I think right way to approach the market, should always be focus on next possible area of confluence or area of least resistance. In this weekly report we’ll analyze and see how to approach the market, and stay on the right side.

19 oct weekly outlook

The week passed by…

  • In the first three trading session momentum was appearing slightly bleak, however by Thursday & Friday wings turn on other side, and scenario start appearing optimistic. Week on week basis Nifty closed with gains of 48 points and formed candle Hanging man, essentially it tells us buying interest at lower levels, but at the same time we should take little caution as well.
  • Finally, NF closed above its major 200-DEMA after 36 trading sessions, which gives me little hope of recovery, and also 50 & 21-DEMA (8060-8080) is placed at lower levels to support the price on any minor correction.
  • NF has filled the gap of 8060-8225 and closed above it, and on moving above weekly high, it will target for another unfilled gap near 8322-8360 levels.
  • Amongst the oscillators 14-period RSI is exhibiting strength, however I need furthermore confirmation from it, but as of now flow suggest bullish bias.
  • As depicted in attached, while drawing trendline from swing highs, we get two lines which and that is the area where NF is going to face utmost resistance, because this is the area above which underlying negativity may cooled-off and NF targets for higher levels.
  • Among other Indices, Bank Nifty appears to be prepared for next leg of rally, and chart structure of NF & BNF looks similar.
  • On Friday CNXAUTO has formed Star candle and now we need to see whether it turns out to be a Evening star, so keep watch of Monday’s closing, otherwise setup appears to be decent enough.
  • CNXIT disappointed the participants, or lets put it in right sense, major IT companies had disappointed market participants or Research Analyst community. Here once again I remember Ace Fund managers tweet

  • CNXMETAL after a flurry move in earlier week, turned quite in last week. So once again, better to take profits on the table, and wait for next move.
  • Keep watch on CNXMIDCAP, as such in last week was not much happening here, but it seems that next week can be action pegged here.
  • Structurally CNXPHARMA is forming Ascending Triangle kind of a formation, but mind you it is not always necessary that breakout comes on the upside only, it can come either side. To turn bullish wait for 13400 to cross.

Derivative Insights

  • Till date FII’s have infused more than 3100 crore of capital, whereas in just single day (Thusday) DII’s bought to the tune of 2744.55 and now for the month they stand at 2300 crore (sheer jump from negative to positive)
  • Week on week basis FII’s have cut there long position to the tune of 59386 contracts and to similar extent shorts are build 50932 contracts. It seems that institutions have done some profit booking or reduced their position to tune of 1452 crores.
  • Interestingly if we observe Options build-up of FII’s only, then they are long call options 91213 contracts and Put longs are reduced by 61934 contracts. At the same time they have unwound call shorts are build by 89469, while 46021 Put contracts are short build. Above points indicates little cautiousness, like last week FII’s are not very bullish on the market.

Last week’s review – I expect in this week markets are likely to remain highly volatile, as nobody will turn out to be clear winner. Level specific, NF on sustaining above 8225 will target of 8325 levels and may be it can target for 8390-8400, but sustenance near this level is a big challenge. On the downside supports are placed near 8100, and till NF holds above this level, I prefer to stay long if at all it corrects below 8000 then one think to create shorts, between 8100-8000 is neutral zone..  Weekly low for the NF was 8088.60.

As on Friday NF stands at 8238 and weekly high is 8246.40. On the top I had clearly mentioned that weekly candle suggest little cautiousness, so it is better to turn little skeptical, and allow NF to hold and sustain above 8250, if it does then stay put with long position and target for 8325-8350 levels, and if fails to do so then allow for some retracement upto  8150-8130, where one may take some risk and go long keeping stop loss below 8080.

In the attached chart I market big circle which is area of confluence between 8350-8400, and my anticipation is that, this area will not be taken out so easily, so in the first go I would prefer to take the profit on table, and then evaluate for next move.

Nifty Weekly Technical Outlook for 12 Oct’15

They say there are two sides to everything. But there is only one side to the stock market: and it is not the bull side or the bear side, but the right side. – Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

Isn’t it a Golden Rule of the stock market. We all are stuck with our own prejudices, some are hardcore bulls and some are happy to be Bears of the market, but real trick is to stay on the right side of the market. Essentially it tells us to be objective and not to get drive away with your own biases. Honestly it is very difficult to follow this simple discipline in the market, but if we don’t follow this rule then most of the time you find yourself in a situation when you don’t have any convincing trade to take, and if at all you are taking then it will be by force but not by choice-now force could be anything, it can be your boss, it can be your own psychological compulsion to always stay in a market or may be something else. And now with experience I can surely tell you that if you are convinced about any trade then you are not taking trade but you are betting in a casino without knowing any rules of the game i.e playing Blind.And why to play Blind when you can correct yourself.  At Way2Profits my objective is always to play safe and conservative, as Money Saved is Money Earned, isn’t it.

12 oct nifty view

The week passed by…

Monday turned out to be a fantastic day for bulls as NF moved strength to strength, but rest all four sessions kept market participants in skepticism, as volatility kept traders on their toes. If we see weekly candle then it clear indicates positive bias, but most of the gain came in from Monday’s move.

  • Technically speaking, NF managed to fill the gap 8060-8225 created on 24 Aug’15, but that’s it, it just filled the gap and turned back, as selling pressure near the highs dragged NF again lower.
  • As depicted in attached chart, NF is hovering near its 200-DEMA (8184), and incidentally when NF has opened gap down it broke the support of its 200-DEMA and when it is filling the gap it is standing on the brink of its average, which clearly indicates its importance. Historically, if we see then since from 2012 NF stayed below its 200-DEMA for maximum time of 40-days and till date we have completed almost 33 sessions, and even if we see previous price behavior than in that case also in last 5-7 trading session NF was hovering near the average, that is what we are doing at this point in time. Based on this hypothesis may be for next week NF may remain sideways, and eventually surge higher.
  • Bank Nifty is also facing resistance of its 200-DEMA, but it failed to fill the gap with slightest margin.
  • Similar is the case with CNXAUTO, which is struggling near its 200-DEMA and not filled the major gap.
  • But if we see CNX IT Index which is sustaining well above its 200-DEMA and it has filled the gap very early in the last month only. We should also not forget that INFY is going to announce its results on Monday morning, followed by other major companies, which will set the trend for coming sessions. Similar is the case with CNX PHARMA Index.
  • If we see on standalone basis then CNX METAL was the star performer of the week, forming excellent reversal pattern, but looking at structurally bear move of past, we should take this as dead cat bounce from oversold territory, and play only for short term bounce.

Derivative Insights

  • In the month of October FII’s have infused capital of around 1500 crore.
  • Week on week basis FII’s have built 188274 contracts in future Index, while only 7581 contracts are shorts. So they bought almost worth of 4031 crores.
  • Interestingly if we observe Options build-up of FII’s only, then they are long call options 90849 contracts and Put longs are only 66444. At the same time they have unwound call short options to the tune of (-) 34481, while 122657 Put contracts are short build. This clearly indicates bullish bias to me, as they are building not only long contracts but they covering their call shorts and adding further in put shorts.
  • Last week’s review – I would prefer to stay long only above 7950, stop should be placed below 7880, looking for upside of 8050 and if NF manages to sustain above 8050 then 8200 would be next level to watch for.  Expectations turned out to be in sacrosanct with market move

According to me, NF stands at a Inflexion point and that is the reason we are see such a high volatility in the market, because from here on one party will start dominating other. I expect in this week markets are likely to remain highly volatile, as nobody will turn out to be clear winner. Level specific, NF on sustaining above 8225 will target of 8325 levels and may be it can target for 8390-8400, but sustenance near this level is a big challenge. On the downside supports are placed near 8100, and till NF holds above this level, I prefer to stay long, if at all it corrects below 8000 then one think to create shorts, between 8100-8000 is neutral zone. I hope my point is clear; as mentioned in the beginning be on the right side.

Nifty Weekly Technical Outlook for 05 Oct’15

Finally much anticipated Rate Cut announced by RBI and once again it gave a big surprise to street by cutting 50 BPS, as 25 BPS was very much discounted by the market, also 50 points rate cut was not expected. We very well know that it’s positive for Equity markets, but does it managed to change the technical scenario at all? Let’s consult our charts and see whether RBI has set the tone for Bottom or not.

05 oct nifty outlook

Finally week ended with gains of 82.40 points or 1%. Technically if we see Nifty not even manage to move above previous weeks high of 8021.60, as cluster of resistances are placed in the vicinity of 8020-8060 levels. As of now weekly candle indicates buying interest from lower levels, however moving forward it need to decisively close above the previous weeks candles.

If we see there is no much difference between previous week and last week, moreover prices remained in the same range.

Technically, Nifty is struggling to surpass and sustain above Gap area created on 24 Aug and for bulls it will be real challenge.

Last week’s review – it is always prudent that not to trade on the third day of any move for a continuation of that move. If you have a missed bottom or top three day move against the trend is normal movement, so wait patiently for Monday’s closing, meanwhile one may initiate longs for small objective with small stop losses, like buy above 7885 keeping stop loss below 7840 for smaller objective… If on Monday NF manages to close above 7950 then it may set the tone for further upside.  As expected Monday remained quite volatile and finally Nifty ended sharply lower. The way in which Tuesday market moved, hardly anyone would have got a chance to initiate longs, and lastly week ended exactly at 7950.

Even during the last week it was very clear that bullish tone will only set above 7950 and now we are standing exactly on that point. So I would prefer to stay long only above 7950, stop should be placed below 7880, looking for upside of 8050 and if NF manages to sustain above 8050 then 8200 would be next level to watch for. What if market falls below 7880, in that case don’t turn aggressively bearish, wait for a while. So let’s keep finger cross and see whether we manage to test 8200 levels.
