APOLLO HOSPITAL - Stoploss 957


Market outlook - index management at work?

NIFTY was up 84 points of which 62 points were contributed by 6 stocks. Of this, 40 points were contributed by RELIANCE, HDFC and TCS.

Inspite of all this, advance decline was negative so if these 6 stocks had closed flat, nifty would have been in the negative by 60 points.

Buy signals

Trade long with min 10-20% SL and do not risk more than 1% of your capital on any trade... this risk management is the only way to ensure you are still in the market after multiple loss making trades.

Market outlook

Trend is up with support at 7450. Resistance is at 7800.

However today's trading range was extremely small and it could be argued that while bulls did not have the strength to pull markets higher, the bears so far did not make any attempt to start selling stocks.

Weekly charts - GOLD and SILVER

Both these are trending down for quite some time. However recent corrections are slower and taking more time to achieve a price effect.

How to identify a trend

We all keep hearing the "trend is your friend" or "follow the trend" etc but what is a trend?

A trend is the persistence of a stock to move in a particular direction (up or down) over extended periods of time. 

Since TA principles are independent of time, different trends can co-exist simultaneously over different time frames. For eg., it is common for weekly trend to up and daily trend to be down. Ditto for intraday charts.
