TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: Bearish start to the week.

After a few days of minimal action the market showed some tendency to slip lower on Friday. The downmove led to a slight weakening of the weekly picture. Not much though, as the range was still limited. But the important thing is, the week ended negative and that will have a bearing on how people think. Now, the Dow has got socked for yet another week (it is the sixth down week in a row there) and when seen in that context, we should be beginning the week soft.

The daily chart of the NF is shown here with modified Gann angle lines. It can be seen that the support line has been successful in containing the previous big declines into it. now it is being approached once again. Current level of this trendline is at 5435- within hailing distance of the current levels. We do find in the past that the line has been penetrated some before rallies set in. Hence we have to allow for similar things this time around also, if it cracks. A 1x3 angle line suggests a drop till 5365 is possible without violating the support concept of this line. Weak overseas market advises would certainly hold out for this. Other indicators are also pointing towards more declines. The market would have to really make some strenuous efforts to negate these negative build up of signals.

Option positions are loaded against any advances. Calls were piled on end of last week. The PCR dropped sharply to 1.23. But IVs are holding steady around 16.5%. They are on the lower end of the spectrum but talks with professional option trading desks indicate an expectation that they may recede further. Hence there is continued shorting even at these levels. We have been suggesting some short options in the last week and that should have panned out rather nicely as the straddles and strangles have lost value during the week. But we feel we are not at a point where IV levels are low enough and possibility of a trended move high enough to warrant a long option position to be created. Can now go long 5500 straddle or perhaps 56-54 strangle if lesser premium payment is to be made. Note that the idea is to close out the option opposite to the direction that the market moves (i.e. close out the long call if the market moves down and vice versa) from these straddles and strangles.

Stocks appear poised to decline on a broader front as the ones flying bullish flags are few in number. More importantly, sector action appears visible in Banks, Cement, Real Estate, Mining, Metals etc. That again puts the odds in favor of declines for this week. so have a default "sell" setting on your trades at the start of the week!

STRATEGY FOR THE DAY: Prices, volumes, momentum, patterns are all lining up on the bearish side and overseas advises are also weak. it would therefore be very difficult for the market to swim against such a strong current. Look to short weak counters as well as active counters. Check the Table to see the ones that are breaking the "sell Below" levels and go after them. The ones breaking the second support are to be deemed very weak and they should be tracked for selling further on intra day rallies. Buys are mentioned but do keep strict stops on them if taken.

Stocks to buy if market is strong:

INDIA INFOLINE This financial counter has been showing some bullish intent.

Indonesian nightmare for Tata, Adani, JSW, Lanco: The Indonesian government has, in an order, decided to link the price of coal exported from the country with a benchmark based on international prices of coal. Mining companies will have to modify all their old contracts by September 23, 2011, the Indonesian government has said. That puts currently operational plants of Tata Power (the Mundra ultra mega power project in Gujarat), Adani Power, (also in Mundra), JSW (in Ratnagiri, Maharasthra) and Lanco Infratech (Udupi) in the line of fire because most of their feedstock comes from Indonesia. Indonesian coal had been traditionally sold at a discount of around 15% compared with fuel from Australia and South Africa. The overall implication would be complex to assess as it will depend on individual companies’ import content, proportion of non-regulated supply and the extant bid on escalatability of coal prices. Merchant power sales are price-sensitive, and while sellers may take some hit on their margins, overall volumes could certainly dip
