Pre - Market Report (2nd March 2020)

Pre Market Report:
  1. February was the Worst Month for Stock Market.
  2. We are beginning March with some optimism as GDP Data was a bit higher.
  3. Over the weekend, first death reported from US and Australia.
  4. China Manufacturing PMI came at 35, the lowest on record & Chinese Markets shed 500 points in the Morning due to this.
  5. Dow futures were down 500 points in the early morning.
  6. Then came the news: BOJ's Kuroda says will take steps to stabilize markets & all markets recovered after this news.
  7. Japan's Nikkei index shot up about 400 points.
  8. But any bounce will used by short sellers to sell.
  9. As the announcements by Fed and BoJ are general in nature, no specific announcements.
  10. Auto sales data for February are very bad, except for Maruti.
  11. Maruti sales fell by a couple of percentage while Tata Motors and M&M sales fell 35, 40%.
  12. Remember on Friday, only two stocks closed in Green, Maruti and IOC.
  13. So markets seems to know the figures even before announcements.
  14. Brent Crude has fallen below $49.
  15. Gold is also falling.
  16. SGX Nifty hit a low of 11017 and that should be the low for the short term.
  17. But the bad news from Corona Virus is not stopping.
  18. For most part of Friday's trading, Nifty future was trading around 11300.
  19. So as long as Nifty future does not cross 11300, we have to be careful.
  20. Since the volatility is very high, premiums also are very high.
  21. Selling Call options nearer may be dangerous as Govts start talking of measures to stabilise the markets.
  22. The fear is so high, even 10150PE trading around Rs 15 in weekly options which is Insane.
  23. This means, Nifty will have to fall more than 1000 points in next four days for thse buyers to make profit.
  24. Last time, this kind of fear was seen only in 2008.
  25. SBI is a stock to watch as SBI Card IPO opens today.
  26. If that receives good response, SBI will help Bank Nifty to stabilise.
  27. Im getting many Queries like should we invest in the IPO in falling Markets will it reach Expectations etc. I think this should get much better response in falling Markets as people do not have any other Alternative to invest . All have lost so badly in last week that they would like to cover up the same through this IPO. So the Response should be Fabulous.
  28. No point in predicting Nifty range in high volatile markets.
  29. I think the easy Money has been made on the Downside and the pace of the Fall should reduce from now on. If we keep falling at this Pace i need to close my Office and go to Himalayas:-)& Nifty would become Zero by April End. So , the pace at which we were falling last week should be curtailed.

Pre- Market Analysis (5th May 2022)

U.S Markets closed higher yesterday. Asian markets are higher. SGX nifty is up 150 points. Yesterday was a very tricky and unexpected session. As soon as Market opened there was a continuous selling. Market was falling left , right and center without taking any support. I was wondering why is the Market going against the global cues Then we got the news about RBI Governer press conference. So some informed people already knew about this rate hike. Hence there was a sudden selling in the markets. RBI hiked repo rate by 40 basis points and Cash Reverse ratio by 50 basis points. Repo rate is the rate at which banks borrow money from RBI. When the rate is increased banks borrow money at higher cost and in turn loans also get costlier. This slows down the growth and liquidity in the Market temporarily. Cash reserve ratio is the interest free deposit money which banks have to keep with RBI. RBI uses that money without having to pay any interest on it. Increasing CRR means RBI is

Pre - Market Analysis (18th April 2022)

U.S Markets closed lower on Thursday. Asian markets are all lower. Dow futures are lower right now. SGX Nifty is down 250 points. Indicating a huge gap down at the open. Reason is the Global markets underperformance plus not so good corporate results. Infosys has disappointed and missed earnings by street estimates. Infy ADR was down 9% in last 2 trading sessions in U.S Hdfc bank also missed earnings but asset quality has been improved. Today we can expect huge gap down openimg in infy. Hdfc bank has limited downside left because it has already fallen a lot after the merger news. 17150-17200 is a strong support on Nifty and this is where 200 DMA kicks in. If you are a Bull this is a large support area. Markets are oversold and this offers a good opportunity to go long. Nect support comes in at 17k. If global markets keep declining then no support would work. Bank Nifty 200 DMA kicks in at 36800. Bank Nifty looks much stronger than Nifty currently as IT isn't included in

Pre - Market Analysis (11th April 2022)

U.S Markets closed mixed on Friday. Dow Jones closed slightly higher. S&P 500 was flat and Nasdaq is very weak. Right now , Dow futures are lower. SGX Nifty is down 100 points. So we are in for a gap down opening today. Friday was a quite interesting day. As expected , RBI policy was a status quo. Nifty broke Thursday low of 17640 and traded below for quite some time. And then for a short squeeze. All the shorts were trapped and we had a big rally. Most importantly , India VIX was down 7% on Friday. I expect markets to consolidate between 17600 to 18100 for a while. I do not see a reason to be excessively bearish now. Markets went from 17700 to 18100 because of hdfc twins. And then crashed to 17600 because of these both stocks. These both stocks have given up all of their gains and are back to Pre merger levels. There is very limited downside now for these stocks and expecting these stocks to bottom out soon 17500 to 17600 is a strong buy zone on Nifty. Also earnings se
