Happy New Year 2012 to all Site readers.


2011 came to an end on dismal note with Sensex recorded its second worst performance in the last 14 years, second only to 2008 .BSE and Nifty is down 24%  making it one of the worst performers in the global stock markets.  The real pain is in DEFTY ie. Nifty is Dollar term which is down 43% attributing to the Rise in INR of 19%. Foregin investor have seen there portfolio value eroding by 43% which has left a deep black hole in there pockets.


Below is Month on Month Performance of Nifty down 24% in absolute term

SEP 2011 Nifty -1.2%
OCT 2011 Nifty +7.8

DEC 2011 Nifty -4.3%

 What to expect out of 2012

I am a firm believer of History and Chart pattern repeat itself .2012 being a leap year which as per history is not good for Stock Market

Leap years are generally not so good for the markets if you see the years 1992,1996, 2000, 2008 all of them have been leap years which are the years where major corrections have happened in Stock Market.

  • 92 was famous for Harshad Mehta Scam
  • 2000 for Dot come Bubble Burst and Ketan Parakh scam
  • 2004 was when NDA lost and market corrected and the 11% fall in May 17
  • 2008 US financial Crisis and major slowdown.

So time to be cautious as per Historical data from past 20 years on Financial market.


Lets Jump into technical for coming week


Hourly chart


Hourly charts are looking extremly weak as Nifty broke and close below the important support area of 4650. Volumes were less on the day when nifty broke below 4650 so it can be considered as whipsaw if Nifty on Monday closes above 4650 F&O turnover was just 65K cores.

For this downtrend to get over Nifty needs to close above 4725 level as shown in red trendline in above chart.

Daily Chart

On daily chart Nifty is approaching the all important support level of 4531.  January as such have been a crucial month as 2011 Jan Nifty crashed 11%, 2008 Jan we had the panic fall of 25% in 2 days. So January are always exciting month and huge and wild swings are inheritant.

3  Sceanrios are Possible

1. Nifty bounced of from Monday above 4650

2. Nifty reaches near 4531 forms a double bottom and rallies

3. Nifty breaks 4531 and made a new Low for 2012 around 4430 levels.


I will give more possibility to 1-2 scenario looking at bearish pessimism all around.

As i always say for trader only 1 thing is Important TRDING LEVELS baki sab bakwas.


Nifty Daily Channels

Nifty has entered into a downward facing channel with formation of lower lows. Till lower low formation do not gets invalidated and Nifty remains in downward channel weakness will persist is market.

Channel Breakout of upside comes above 4725,Positional Shorts can use 4725 as SL for Shorts created at higher levels.

Weekly chart

Weekly chart break below 4608 will increase the probability of  breaking the 2011 Low of 4531 and making new low@ 4430 which is trendline target. Positive divergence is present on MACD (not shown in above chart)  to show its effect Nifty needs to trade above 4725.

Monthly Chart

Nifty Trend Deciding Level:4646

Weekly Resistance:4670,4725,4756,4810

Weekly Support:4565,4531,4430

  8. Dear Sir,

    Thanks for your Kind words, It helps me in keep going forward and continue with my analysis.

    As i always says for a trader its just levels which count and matters rest all are observation which should be kept in mind to improve our profits and minimizing our losses.

    As an investor/trader no one can catch absolute top and bottom on consistent basis so if you are investor use dips to make entry in market in your fundamentally researches stocks.

    Keep putting 20% at these levels and always save money for rainy days.


  9. Dear Ramesh,

    i have a small request. I get mails regularly showing links for various blogs in SB community. Is it not a good idea to identify yourself in the very first line of your post as a practice so we know which link to open? From my mail, i have to click on all links to see which is yours. —Thanks

  10. Dear Ramesh,

    Wish you Happy New Year 2012. I came to know a new friend in you in 2011. Most analysts do not come so close to our heart as you do. Your sincerity is appreciated.

    On the subject, you reflected the buffet policy and referred to the herd mentality of the general public. But i wonder if your leap year concept aligns with the same herd mentality. If so, what is your particular view based on technicals and fundamentals? 1.BUY and KEEP (or) 2.WAIT for some more time for those who want to go really long.

  11. Dear Sir

    Wishing you a Happy and prosperous new Year 2011.

    In 1996 Sensex return was -.2%

    Close on 1995 -3110
    Close on 1996 – 3085


  12. Dear Sir,

    Wish you happy and prosperous new year.

    i used to read your technicals it was very useful. hope you will continue to provide the details.
