Update on The Ultimate Momentum Signal - 30th June, 2010

  The System Signals a Sell ... !

Even though it was expected that the Nifty Futures may test the resistance band, it was not to be ! The test of the resistance band had already happened on Monday itself ! In  the last post it was stated that "all major market indices barring the Indian and the German DAX are trading below their respective 200 day moving averages at present and therefore, the market may fail in the test of previous highs."  On Tuesday the Nifty Futures opened lower at 5322.80 and traded steadily lower  to reach a low of 5240.10 and finally closed  at 5268.50. The futures were supported by the regression channel on Tuesday's trading. However, The Momentum Signal system has already indicated a sell as on Tuesday's trading and therefore, it may break the support on Wednesday's trading. Once the  support line is broken it may also act as the next resistance line.

Nifty Futures - Daily Chart

The Stop Loss for the sell signal remains at the previous high of 5388. The next support for the futures are at the 5100 to 5150 range where many daily and weekly moving averages are situated at present. However, a new low in the western markets of US and UK may induce further weakness or even the much expected medium term correction. ( Please see the US S&P 500 chart below ). Even though the Indian markets are one of the strongest in the world, if and when panic sets in, all markets are sold off and the correlation between them even rises to the maximum.
