Update on The Ultimate Momentum Signal - 27th Aug. 2010

    An Inside Day Candle ... !!!

The Nifty futures opened in the positive territory on the derivative settlement day and stayed there for the first half of the trading session. Unable to make much progress beyond the previous resistance level of 5490, the futures corrected to the previous day's lows by 3 PM. However, the indices, both Nifty and Sensex never broke thorough the previous day's lows on the settlement day. On the back of some rearguard buying action in some of the major Nifty stocks during the last half an hour of trading on the settlement day, the futures recovered and settled at 5478.  The Nifty index and the futures are still hovering above their 20 DMAs which also coincides with the support at 5450. The minor resistances are at the 5490 - 5505 levels.

Any fall below the 5450 level may attract selling and a break above the 5505 level may lead to re-test of the 5550 mark.

"Readers of this blog may please note the following  'Risk Factor' which is being  repeated almost daily these days. The markets may be trading in small ranges at the top end of a slow climb and for all practical purposes the trading may remain range bound. Range bound markets are not suitable for the  profitable trading of the Momentum Signal system."

As such, all readers of this blog are requested to read the various pages describing the system and understand all the intricacies of trading the Momentum Signal and it's risk factors too. Please do write in your comments and suggestions."
