Are we out of Woods looking the the dollar inflow we saw I guess not as still MACRO problem persists. Core sector grew a tepid 3.1% in December, and credit offtake for calendar 2011 almost halved to 15.2%. On the positive side, the HSBC Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), a sentiment indicator, climbed to a seven-month high of 57.5 in January.
So now everybody is asking are we in Bull market or this is one of the sharp and swift bear market rally?
As a Technical Analyst there are basic 4 Criteria to define Bull and Bear Market
1. Trading above 200 SMA — It has been 3 days Nifty has been trading above 200 SMA . Condition Met
2. 200 SMA should trade below 50 SMA which is still not met.As shown in below chart 200 SMA is trading above 50 SMA.Condition Still not Met
3. Bull markets are defined when Index reaches 20% from Bottom ie, Low of nifty was 4532. Now 20% from this level comes at 5438 (4532+906). On this we will get more indication next week. Condition Still not Met
4. :Last condition Index should retrace the 50% fall from the highs. ie From High of 6338 to low of 4532 Nifty should retrace 50% which also comes at 5437. Condition Still not met.
So from the above we can conclude still its early days to say we are in Bull market.
