Technical view by Nooresh

Everyone who was searching for the Bottom missed the Rally !!

All through the last 3 months or in the end of December majority of the people were searching for where is the Bottom.

There were bets as to whether it will do 3800 or 4000 or 4200 or 4400.


Yet again i remember that in the end of December and January the bias had shifted heavily for a crack !! --- This made me bullish and the falling wedge pattern on Nifty gave it more conviction.


Also had clearly mentioned that we are very much invested almost totally as on January 2nd when we initiated the view of a Short Term Rally


Now let us look at the performance of Benchmark Indices.


BSE MIDCAP  --------- --------18.6%


SENSEX -----------------------  14.8%

BSE BANKEX ----------------- 28%

BSE 100 ------------------------17%

BSE 200 ------------------------ 17%

BSE 500 ------------------------- 17.3%


So if we look at it had you just bought on start of January you would be gaining 15-20% and on average so many quality stocks have jumped 25-35% in the last 1 month.


But what were you searching for a BOTTOM ? Will you be able to deploy 100% cash on one bottom day at whatever level you assumed where index is headed?


Precisely for this reason one needs to be disciplined and look for quality stocks in a consistent manner. Also it is very necessary to focus on Technical Analysis to get in at the right time.


Now the next question is whether we have bottomed out ? Well i would stick my neck out and speak my view --- Yes we have and 4500 and 15000 is a long term bottom in place. ( we can test 3% + – closer to it ).


From now we have changed the strategy from Buy in Panics to Buy Quality in dips and continue to look for breakout trades in short term.  To be clear have turned less risk-averse :)


These are some of My tweets on in end of December clearly giving the mood of buying :) Follow us on twitter for quick snippets





The capitulation in midcaps/smallcaps tells me its the time for investors to accelerate buying in quality midcaps. Buy ABnuvo ,Nesco
