  2. Dow fell about 800 points.
  3. Fed cut rates by 50 basis point in a surprising move, 2 weeks ahead of Fed meeting.

  6. Yesterday Australia and Malaysia cut rates.
  7. South Korea announced about 10 billion extra budget measures.
  8. US is planning fiscal measures also in addition to monetary measures.
  9. Now pressure mounts on RBI to cut rates.
  10. If RBI cuts rates, there will be powerful short covering.
  11. SGX Nifty is down by 60 points.
  12. Asian markets are mixed.
  13. Weekly options will add to volatility.
  14. Yesterday SGX Nifty hit 11220, then shot up to 11440 just after Fed rate cut, only to fall back to 11220. SGX Nifty swung more than 500 points.
  15. Markets may be highly volatile but may trade between 11000 and 11500.
  16. Option premiums are so high due to huge volatility & this is the best time to sell Options for Weekly Expiry.
  17. Bank Nifty 26000PE traded at Rs 160 yesterday.
  18. Gold and Crude are higher after US rate cut.
  19. If the markets do not stabilise, we can expect some action from Japan, UK and Europe.
  20. On every bounce I have been selling Call options.
  21. I sold 11600CE , 11700 CE in weekly Options.
  22. Bank Nifty weekly sold 30000, 30200, 30300, 30500CE.
  23. Remember rate cuts do not solve the problem of Corona Virus & this is a Temporary phenomena to boost the Sentiment of Markets.
  24. I will cut all Call options, if there are no more bad news from Corona front.
  25. Option Buying may play out to be very risky as the Premiums are quite high in both the Directions. Premiums will fall Drastically if VIX stabilises & also only 2 days left for Expiry so the time is less to cover up.
  26. Trend is Strong and its towards the Down Side. Still it is not a right time to go long on Indices by thinking that all the Negatives have been Priced in.
  27. After such huge Crash , we cannot witness a Vertical rally Immediately. There is a Process. First the Market Consolidates ,sets a base , makes a bottom and then starts to rally which takes time.
  28. Until then Whatever we are witnessing is just a Bounce it may be due to some short covering but buying hasn't started yet.
  29. Interesting data I have observed is Nifty Futures is Trading at Discount for this whole Expiry. This shows excessive Bearishness which is Prevailing in current Markets.
  30. 11400 is a short term resistance and 11100 is a short term support on Nifty.
  31. In such high Volatile Markets the best Strategy to trade is to reduce your Volumes and increase your Stoploss. The Problem in these Volatile Markets is the Movement is so severe that Stoploss gets Triggered most of the time & Trading without Stoploss is Equivalent to Driving a Vehicle without Brakes.

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

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
