  • Expiry ahead

    Expiry ahead   

    The key thing to watch out for in trade today is the Futures and Options (F&O) expiry. It is important to see if the higher end faces some sort of pressure or not.

    Consolidation ahead of expiry

    Midcap weakness   

    The midcap index has been down for the last four days. The index is down in excess of about 4 percent in the last four days versus the Nifty and the Sensex which is down close to about 0.8 percent.

    It is an important week for the market, we have F&O expiry, so technically there is going to be a lot action on the F&O side of the market and apart from that we have big earnings.

  • Respect markets message!!

    Respect markets message!!   

    The sense I get is that the market being practically close to all time high now, could turn a bit sideways.

  • Don't short, buy the dips

    Don't short, buy the dips   

    This market has unfinished business. It need to make a move towards 9600 or above before the meaningful correction sets in but it will happen with some bit of risk off in between like it happened on Friday, the way the midcaps fel...

  • Profit booking not a bad strategy

    Profit booking not a bad strategy   

    The market would still rally and if it takes out yesterday's high then maybe it makes a move towards 9,500 and it could still happen but if you are sitting on profits, it might be good time to protect some profit, move into so...

  • Don't chase momentum now

    Don't chase momentum now   

    Today if you are buying a gap up, you are taking a risk. So you should not buy the gap up today. Wait for dips to buy.

  • Breakout today?

    Breakout today?   

    The market will move on and ultimately make higher highs. So it could happen today, it could happen over the next couple of days but it will make a new high.

  • One step back, two forward

    One step back, two forward   

    Template is very simple, the market is now going to that one step back process in which you have to accumulate good quality stocks.

  • Avoid commodity stocks

    Avoid commodity stocks   

    For me the structure of the market is such that with global cues looking slightly weak especially for emerging markets but with so much money on the sidelines that the buy on dips could well play out.

  • ICICI to drive market today

    ICICI to drive market today   

    If you look at ICICI Bank compared to its bigger peers, it is up only 7 percent, Bank Nifty itself has moved some 20-30 percent and the biggest banks have moved some 30-40 percent.

  • Buy dips, don't chase momentum & don't short

    Buy dips, don't chase momentum & don't short  

    If you have been holding ever since last three-four months, sure enough you can buy, get some dismanagement in place but for you to buy fresh now specially into demat account, you need this market to correct now.

  • Complacency phase, be cautious

    Complacency phase, be cautious   

    In a healthy market, you need people to also lose money periodically and right now what is happening is that you are just making money left, right and centre in any and every stock.

  • Time to take a step back

    Time to take a step back   

    This is a start of a May series. They say “sell in May and go away”, of course it has been proven right at times as well but May in the past has also been a series in which we have seen huge rallies as well.

  • One final round of short squeeze

    One final round of short squeeze   

    If you have been listening to what I have been saying for the last two-three days, you would have made a lot of money because expiry week is about momentum, momentum is strong.

    Market still has legs to go   

    If this was not expiry week, the market would have struggled to take out the 9,270 mark.

  • Nifty, Bank Nifty may test new high

    Nifty, Bank Nifty may test new high   

    So the focus should be on the old economy and there is a good chance that this market on the Bank Nifty should make a new all-time high today and even on the Nifty.

  • Focus on midcap stocks

    Focus on midcap stocks   

    The foreign institutional investors (FII) money has gone missing all of a sudden, that is why the market is not able to breakout but because the market has downside support, individual midcaps are doing well.

    9050 crucial level   

    The market went to the higher end, could not sustain there, came down quite sharply, now there is a good chance that the market goes towards the lower end of the band towards 9,050 or so and there is a very good chance that even t...
