On 3rd November I warned you to get out of your Reliance Industries holdings near 1480. (see the post here.) I think the stock will bottom out between 855 and 905. However, being small investors, we should start buying from Rs 925. Sure, a lot of bad news could still come from India. But at this level, Reliance will be a great buy for the medium term.
The most difficult time to trade any instrument is when it is in a complex 4th wave position. I think the Euro is currently in that position. You might see the currency come down, and just when you think it will continue lower, it could abruptly turn around and race higher. Again, when it is near the top of that rally, many pundits will call for it to go higher still, and hey presto! we could see it dumped all of a sudden. Take a look at the chart and stay away from the Euro for the time being.
Some of you must have bought Citi when it was trading below $12. (see my post Let’s join the “Rescue Citi” effort! ) Sure I am looking for this stock to double in the medium term. But if you are like most traders who want to pocket some quick money, then be ready to sell on any move towards 14.50. I don’t think we will get past 15.25 this time, and would be more than happy to sell at 14.50 and wait for another dip to buy again.
What is the outlook for S&P500 once we get the US Presidential Election results? This is the question that most traders of US stocks and options have in their mind. Let me start with the assertion that we are still in a bear trend in the big picture. Bear market rallies are common, and often take us up by 25% or more. But inevitably, the trend will reassert itself, and we will be back on our way down. So use this rally to get out of those stocks which you might have bought too soon, and wait for better levels to buy them back. As for sell-levels, well, I think 1045 should be a decent level to get out, but if we get to 1136 levels, I might even think of turning short on some weak stocks! To sum up, don’t overstay this rally in the SNP500 beyond 1136. Actually you should watch what happens at 1045 and run for cover if we start coming off from there.
