Nifty Update - Nifty Preparing To Tank Again

The NSE Nifty has moved along expected lines, but almost out of habit, has staged a sharp recovery due to an oversold situation coupled with extreme bearishness (read: sentiment) – not to mention the 10 trading session 568 point fall. Low volumes have seen extreme swings in the market, but the inherent weakness in the Nifty (read: a clear lower top, lower bottom scenario on even the monthly chart continues unabated) remains omnipresent. A 250-point Nifty rebound in a matter of five trading sessions has seen a short-term bounce gain some ground, with a 50 per cent retracement of the aforesaid decline coming in at 4817, while traditional resistance at the 4835 could limit the upside for the time being.

The Mid- and Small-Caps (distinct weak spots) have staged a (feeble) recovery in line with the market. Banks have been market performers, while Capital Goods have struggled to recover. Consumer Durables have staged a decent recovery and FMCG has been amongst the brightest spots in the market, though Pharma has been rather lacklustre. IT has been very solid but Metals has been one of the weaker spots. Realty has clawed back. The Nifty has recovered due to a cocktail of all these factors and a further upside cannot be ruled out. It is still too early to expect a trend reversal, but sustainability above the 4835 level is crucial for the short term.

AMBUJA CEMENTS Buy CMP - Rs160.05
1st Target: 180 (4-6 weeks) 2nd Target: 190 (12-14 weeks) Stoploss: 150 (cls)

Ambuja Cements bottomed out by posting an intraweek low of Rs81.80 during the week ended 13th November, 2009, and these levels have rarely been seen since. The scrip launched into an intermediate uptrend to peak at an intra-week high of Rs125.60 during the week ended 30th April, 2010. The stock could not sustain these levels for long, and declined to post an intra-week low of Rs107.55 during the week ended 23rd July, 2010. It commenced its uptrend from here, and rallied to peak at an intra-week high of Rs166.50 during the week ended 12th November, 2010. Currently, the stock seems set to stage an upmove after a decent weekly consolidation. With even the daily picture looking better, a further upside from these levels cannot be ruled out.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) bottomed out by posting an intra-week low of Rs435.55 during the week ended 21st August, 2009, took support at the Rs438 (support) level, recovered smartly and peaked by posting an intra-week high of Rs844 during the week ended 19th March, 2010.

The scrip appreciated to peak at an intraweek high of Rs1247 during the week ended 8th April, 2011, and entered a corrective phase.
