ABAN OFFSHORE chart

Market outlook

- trend still down even after 10 down days
- no follow thru buying even after development of some support
- advance decline negative
- markets nearing oversold levels
- lack of follow thru selling despite break of support might indicate bullishness
- option writing support 8100 resistance 8600 (May series)


NIFTY futures intraday charts

- I did not trade today as it was expiry and option premiums come to zero eventually
- first arrow (short trade) was the only reliable trade
- logic for short trade is break below 2-3 day supports
- all other trades failed (minor profit/ loss) as markets were rangebound.
- loss would have been higher had positions been taken in options


April 29, 2015

Market outlook

- today was a down day though advance decline was positive
- no evidence of buying seen even though previous day was bullish.
- immediate support seen at 8200; break of this can be disastrous for markets
- current levels not good for shorting because risk reward is not favourable
- bulls not giving support at current levels will be an incentive for bears to sell.
- option writing - highest OI puts at 8300 and calls at 8800 (May series)



NIFTY futures intraday charts

- first trade was short (I did not trade this)
- long trade was profitable.
- last trade was short (I did not trade this)

My trades: since I was overnight long in 8300 calls, I exited this around 8290F
and bought this again for a positional trade around 8250 F

Something funny in MAY series

NIFTY closed below 8300 but highest OI is at 8300 strike price (puts)...and there is a cut in OI for 8200 put option. This is rare given the premium.

US S&P 500 large cap index

- ascending triangle

- minor swing high at 8500
- holding 8200 next week/ month will be bullish

NIFTY futures intraday charts

- initial trade on short side as markets break yesterday's low (did not trade)
- trailing SL gets hit
- next long trade also stoplossed as yesterday's low becomes resistance for the day
- incidentally I took only the long trade today as I was getting slowly bullish on the market.
- did nothing thereafter and ignored the 2nd short trade.
- in hindsight, sitting tight after short trade was best strategy had one considered SL around 8370 F

- next week, expect strength above 8370 F


April 23, 2015

CAIRN bearish on monthly charts

CAIRN trading below 2011 and 2013 support levels...


BEL monthly charts

Best time to buy is after a 20-30% correction from current levels.


AXIS BANK technicals

AXIS BANK breaks support... now buy above level is 575


NIFTY RSI monthly chart

Difficult to visualise nifty crossing 9000 in the immediate future.

Holding 7900-8000 would still be bullish though on monthly charts (buy signal around 6700).


BHARATFORGE technicals

Looks like we might have a trend reversal here if stock closes below 1180...




BANK NIFTY technicals

Looks like BNF is forming lower swing high. I will be bullish above 19050... support 17700.

A Math Problem From Singapore Goes Viral: When Is Cheryl’s Birthday?

Check how good you are at logical thinking... I could solve only half the problem.

Albert and Bernard just met Cheryl. “When’s your birthday?” Albert asked Cheryl.

Cheryl thought a second and said, “I’m not going to tell you, but I’ll give you some clues.” She wrote down a list of 10 dates:

May 15, May 16, May 19
June 17, June 18
July 14, July 16
August 14, August 15, August 17

“My birthday is one of these,” she said.

Then Cheryl whispered in Albert’s ear the month — and only the month — of her birthday. To Bernard, she whispered the day, and only the day.

“Can you figure it out now?” she asked Albert.

Albert: I don’t know when your birthday is, but I know Bernard doesn’t know, either.

Bernard: I didn’t know originally, but now I do.

Albert: Well, now I know, too!

When is Cheryl’s birthday? click here for the answer

Monty hall or the 3 door problem

Check how good you are at probability... the answer is not obvious and will confound even a Ph D holder.
Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?"
Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?

Full answer is given here
