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.

Bull Call Spread Options Strategy ( With Practical Example)

I Strongly believe , to be Successful in Stock Markets you Require two things : 1) Edge 2) Hedge Edge means having your own Trading System , following your own consensus & Conviction. Hedge is like an Insurance Policy , it will protect you from losing big and also maximise your earning potential over time without Destruction of your Capital. I will be Sharing one of the Hedging Strategy here. Example : Nifty on Friday (5th June) has closed around 10150. You are Bullish for this Weekly Expiry and what you to do is buy a Call Option of 10200 which is Trading around ₹120. Buying or selling naked Options involves high risk as its equal to betting. If you win you win Big or else you lose Everything. So buying naked Options isnt my Cup of Tea. What will I do in this Scenario? I would buy a 10200 CE (11th June Expiry ) at ₹120 and would sell a 10300 CE (11th June Expiry) at ₹80 to manage my risk. Now there are 3 Situations which can happen : 1) Nifty continues to rise: The 102

Pre - Budget Analysis (1st Feb 2022)

U.S Markets closed higher yesterday. Most importantly , S&P 500 VIX crashed 10%. There was huge Volatility in global markets due to Fed event. Markets remain volatile only when they have topped out or have bottomed out. Right now I feel we have bottomed out at 16850. Asian markets are slightly lower now. Dow futures are lower. SGX Nifty is at 17500. Finally , the most awaited day has come. Budget 2022 is going to be presented today. Expectations are of a good and stable budget. Reasons are the Elections coming up and LIC IPO in March. Govt very well knows if LIC IPO has to go through , Market sentiment has to be good. Without good market spending it would be very difficult for IPO to go through. Market had already fallen a lot before the budget. Although we have rallied in last 2 days but still we have some upside left. Though I feel it's not favourable to chase today's gap up. Today's gap up is a good opportunity to book profits those who carried longs. Bud

Pre - Market Analysis (17th Feb 2022)

U.S Markets closed flat yesterday. Right now Dow futures are slightly lower. Asian markets are slightly higher. SGX Nifty is near 17380. Suggesting a flat start for the day. Yesterday was a heavy Volatile session. Markets have moved all over the place yesterday. At one point of time Nifty rallied and at one point of time we were ready to cross 17500. Then news of Russia came that Russia has not fully taken back their military troops. This led to a drastic fall in the last 2 hours. Nifty crashed all the way to 17300. India VIX came to positive. U.S Markets at one point of time were down quite significantly yesterday. But later during the day they have recovered most of their losses. Most importantly , U.S VIX fell 5% yesterday. Here as well we can hope markets to stabilize and VIX to collapse. Premiums are quite attractive considering only 6.days left for expiry  1000 points away put options are also trading at 20-25 rs premium. These put option buyers you know are crazy peo
