Update for 22nd February 2011

 Yet Another Rally and What Now ?

  • This update includes only the bare essentials due to some constraints. Readers are requested to kindly bear with the short update.
  • Yet, this author is inclined to repeat some quotes from the previous post. " ....the market is still in the bullish area of the charts and some of the upward momentum might still be out there. Therefore, it seems that if the market is able to hold the 5400 level, it may recover and try to test the resistances above before deciding about the future direction by the time of budget."
  • And this is exactly what happened on Monday's trading.
  • Since this author was away from the trading action today, due to some personal exigencies, he is refraining from making any further market commentary in this update. However, all usual charts and data are still here. 
  • However, here is an unavoidable comment. Although the union budget might become a non-event from the market's point  of view, it might still attract some avoidable event risk. Therefore, traders are advised to keep only very light positions,  preferably of the long option type. The increase in the India VIX also points in to the direction of the market's self adjustment to face the perceived event risk associated with the budget. The increase in implied volatility ( IV ) as indicated by the India VIX may affect the profitability of any such long option positions negatively, if no significant movements happens in the market after the budget.
