Forget bullet train, just give Mumbai safe and functioning infrastructure

What use is the bullet train if we can't even build a simple bridge or staircase to a railway station?

The Elphinstone station tragedy need not have occurred at all.

Repeated warnings and 100+ tweets  to the government have fallen on deaf ears.

How many more deaths before the government wakes up from it's slumber?

Nifty can Bounce Above 10178 in Coming Days – Elliott Wave Analysis

Nifty opened almost flat at 9736 and declined to register day’s low 9687 but bounced from lower levels by 100 points to register day’s high 9789 before closing 33 points up at 9768.

Yesterday, I explained that an Irregular correction is about to completed in 9695-9619 range after which there is a possibility of sharp bounce for new high above 10178.I suggested to exit all shorts and avoid fresh shorts until we get any confident bearish pattern and suggested to buying 10000 Oct call to hold till further updates. Nifty entered in 9695-9619 range and bounced back by 100 points. Let’s have a fresh look at latest charts for further scenario.

Another nice post on risk management

...If you are risking 5% of your capital per trade and have a win/loss ratio of 50%, during the next three years of active trading you will experience a 30% drawdown at least 15 times. Sound fun?

Just so you know, most people who trade for a living risk less than 1% of their capital in a trade, 2% in a maximum commitment.

I will have more to say about risk management in the coming weeks, but for the 26% of respondents who reported risking more than 5% of their capital per trade, let me say just two words to you — you’re history! The 50% of respondents who risk less than 2% of their capital per trade have a fighting chance.


Morgan Stanley sees Sensex at 1 lakh in next 10 years

Morgan Stanley expects the benchmark Sensex to cross the 1 lakh-mark by 2028, making it one of the the top five equity markets in the world with a market capitalisation of $6.1 trillion.

"We think India's stock market could be among the world's best performers in the next ten years, leading to India's market cap rising from $2 trillion to $6 trillion."

"We see the BSE Sensex crossing the 100,000 mark, albeit the bulk of the returns are likely to be front ended in  ..

Why so much micromanaging? Goes against ease of doing business

At a time when small businesses and corner shops are struggling to make money, the government comes out with a plan to stop cigarette and paan bidi shops selling biscuits, softdrinks etc.

The health ministry had on September 21 sent letters asking state governments to develop a mechanism by which shops will need permission from municipal authorities to sell tobacco products. The letter, which ET has seen, also asks states to prohibit such shops from selling non-tobacco products such as sweets, chips, biscuits and soft drinks in a move to prevent children and those who don’t use tobacco from exposure to such products.

My question: in mumbai, these small shops also sell batteries, snacks, shampoo / washing powder sachets, toothpaste etc. This is a need which small businesses fulfill.

It is not possible for many cigarrete/ paan bidi shop to survive solely on 2-3 products. These will eventually be forced to shut shop or do business under the table (more likely).

If government is so serious about health of its citizens, why not simply ban these products? One can also ban biscuits, snacks, fast food/ junk food, softdrinks. These are unhealthy and harmful.

Taxes on petro products fetch government Rs 2.67 lakh crore

..according to the government's response to an RTI application, even as the money in the common man's pockets seems to have developed wings, it is the government coffers that are benefiting from the high prices of petroleum products.

During the financial year 2016-2017, the government earned a whopping Rs 2.67 lakh crore revenue on account of several increases in indirect taxes (Excise, Customs and import duties) on such products.

The Need for Advice Never Goes Away

You’re a young person just beginning to invest. You dream of someday having a large portfolio – $1 million, $5 million, $10 million invested. Do you think you’d be at peace then? Do you think you’d be calm or satisfied?

I can tell you from experience that you won’t be any of these things.

You’re an older investor who has done well in the markets over years and decades. You dream of a peaceful period for your holdings and a dwindling of volatility. And then we get into 2017 – a year in which, so far, we have experienced the lowest maximum S&P 500 drawdown in the history of the index. That’s a fact – 2017’s biggest dip this year is just under 3% from the high – this is unprecedented. We’ve never been in such seemingly safe circumstances.

Are you now at peace, then?

Absolutely not. At least, you’re not at peace if you’re rational. This cannot continue forever and you know this. Today’s “safe circumstances” cannot bring you confidence once your mind has been shocked. And in the last twenty years, it’s been shocked plenty.

This permanent condition of the human mind is why god sent advisors into the world. And this demonstrates amply why the need for advice never goes away.


Sell signal on nifty with kplswing indicator

The kplswing indicator has given a sell signal on nifty today.

There is a good chance of a whipsaw as markets are rangebound for sometime. At times like this, it is normal for the indicator to give a sell near a support or a buy signal near a resistance.
