The Nifty already ranged by puts and calls at 6000 and 6300 is likely to consolidate signs of moving up as the 6100 puts start looking good for a ramp. Despite the global cues, including an agreement with Iran, the market seems to show the Call writers have finally suffered from overconfidence for the second time on the trot this month and second time this rally after having been caught in October. The Rupee tantalisingly at 63 seems to be a factor too but Traders and other market experts seem to have decided not to wait frther to buy into India. Citi’s MD, Mr Pankaj Vaish as much said so about institutional investors too on the weekend.
Even as Jindal Steel makes an exit from the Sensex, markets are finally separating the grain from the chaff, KArl Slym and JLR not helping the failing Tata Motors cause while Bulls continue in Tata Steel, probably widening th ga before the Ratan Tata vehicle Tata air and Air Asia get into the fight in 2014
As mentioned above, Nifty decided against trying further value levels aand opened around 6050.
Worth mentioning n fellow Network Analysts’ would e that despite the preponderence of buys that favor Bata and also repeat Tat Global, some have decidely loved the short on Bajaj Auto. Again Bajaj Auto was the genesis of the bbull trap last time around and Bears and shorts will pay heavily esp in derivatives for remaining short on what is likely the most of all bull trades in specific scrips in India after Pfizer and Wyeth as Banks remain on the back seat. In PSU bank picks to short too, TRaders 20 on both leading channels showed the kind of mistakes that can be made as BOI may not yield further in the short and a UCO Bannk may already be at the bottom after a year long short on the scrips, the last month rally in PSU banks (unfortunate) never reaching UCO Bank
If played along the ground in the sessions till Wednesday the markets may well try 6350 sooner than later before Friday close, but shorts digging in at this high concentration seems to me an isolated uncorrelated event worth researching as the US VIX on the other side rules at all time lows in low double digits and ready to try new levels ona new high from last week.
Good news for Axis Bank as it enters the Sensex 30 by December 23. If Banks do respond to that as a secular class, despite Axis Bank hit on the FII ceiling of 49%, it will not be a big trend to ride but a one off, as the Fitch/Moody’s restatement of NPA woes is a twist anyone following pSU banks was having a hard time swallowing and markets were eagerly waiting for a turnaround in Q2 results let alone letting the slide be ignored in the DEcember and March quarters as provisions likely shoot up
IDFC and LIC Housing Finance seem to be walking away with the cake and short term traders continue to ignore a wonderful opportunity as investos stock up on both playersI would back picks on All Bank and Andhra Bank apart from the return to weight for PNB and BOI as ICICI Bank comes back to 1050 levels i n morning trades
Gold’s probably going back to 27k levels if not 25.5 (‘000 per 10 g) and if Fixed Income yields spin back to below 8.5% aided by the exit of trades on the older benchmark, things would get smoother for cash equities and the December series. Polling is underway today and counting would unlikely bring any shocks next week. Bank nifty would be stuck at 11,000. Oil prices will continue south after the Iran deal for 6 months makes arrangement for Iranian repatriation of oil profits, oil sales and humanitarian trade i.e. export of food and medicine among others to the India favorite (trade terms)
