Air India likely to suspend operations for 15 days due to stir by pilots. Impact: Our buy call on Kingfisher at 56, SL 48, TGT 70/75 will do good.

On friday we gave a call : Buy Kingfisher Airlines (KFA) around 56-58, SL 48, TGT 70/75 in next 1 week holdings. KFA to raise $175mn thru GDR at higher price, OI rising in its Oct future.

New Update:-
Air India likely to suspend operations from midnight
Air India is likely to suspend operations for about two weeks from midnight tonight in the wake of the continuing stir by executive pilots, sources said today. At least 40 flights were cancelled across the country as some pilots, majority of them Delhi-based, continued to report "sick" to protest cut in Productivity-Linked Incentive (PLI). The pilots remained adamant on their demand that their three months of flying allowance and PLI, which are "due", should be paid in full before they resume their duties.

Impact: Other airlines will do good business due to this hence stocks of Jet Airways & KFA are likely to move up on Tue.

“Don't be Santusht… Thoda aur wish karo, Trading Karo”
Who says you are not a trader? If you are saying that you are a pure (1st of all nothing in this world is called “Pure”) investor/trader then you are misleading yourself. Don’t you trade your skill, your talent or your knowledge for getting pay cheque from your company where you do Job.
You must not speculate blindly but one MUST trade whether it is trading in equity or commodity or intangible asset, trading is after all trading. Now, coming back to equity trading, who said money can’t be made in trading equity, let me give you my own example, way back in 2002-03 when I left one of the I-Bank in order to start a proprietary trading, I made 12-15 lakhs in just 2 years from base capital of just Rs 3 lakhs and it was the time when market was doing nothing, no movement at all, no one was interested in the market.
I do agree that such returns are not sustainable but one must not forget that even RJ use to trade in his early days and after he made killing in ACC stock way back in 1992 times, he invested all his profits into long term bets. Most of the people who don’t come with huge capital take this route to earn and invest.
So, don’t say that I don’t want to trade; if that is the case then you are missing one of the smart ways to make money. It is something like saying, hey, I don’t eat non-veg; I am a vegetarian. This person might not know what he is missing on. So, if you are “Santusht” (Satisfied with what you are doing) then you will remain what you are now.
If you want to see a change in your life pattern, 1st be the change, don’t just invest, you must do trading. Investing is a passive game doesn’t required much effort and zero adrenaline secretion, trading gives you a life, makes you active, keeps you on the toe and at the same time earns you a lot. Here we are talking trading as per “SLT’s ways of trading with discipline”.
Dude, if you want to live a longer life without doing exercise, you MUST trade. And if you want to get the FREE "SLT’s trading rule book” you MUST subscribe for its 1 month paid subscription.

Kingfisher Airlines plans to raise up to $175 mn by Mar 2010

At current market price of Rs57, KFA is Rs1500Cr company. It is planning to raise Rs840Cr thru GDR, usually a company dilutes 30-40% of their equity to raise fund, if that is the case then one can see good upside of another 10-20% from here.

News Update:-
Private carrier Kingfisher Airlines plans to raise up to 175 million dollars (about Rs 840 crore) before March next year through rights issue and global depository receipts (GDR).

"Yes, we are planning both rights issue and GDR placement. The combined amount will be about 150-175 million dollars," UB Group Chief Financial Officer Ravi Nedugandi told PTI.

He, however, declined to comment on details saying pricing and exact size have not been finalised yet. "Timing will be before March 2010," he said when asked about the timeline for raising the fund.
Kingfisher is in need of funds and has a total debt of about Rs 6,000 crore.

"This includes about Rs 1,800 crore being given in advance to aircraft manufacturers against future delivery of planes," Nedugandi added. The carrier, which has a fleet of 71 aircraft had placed orders with Airbus, including five confirmed orders for A380s. It had also placed orders for five A340s, which were later converted for five A330 aircraft.

The airline is likely to get the first delivery of the world's largest aircraft Airbus A380 in 2014, which was scheduled for delivery in 2012. The airline has faced problems clearing its fuel bills. Petroleum Minister Murli Deora had informed Parliament in July that Kingfisher Airlines owes over Rs 950 crore to state-run oil companies in unpaid jet fuel bills.

Nomura rates Ranbaxy 'Reduce'; target Rs 261

Source: Web
Nomura has maintained ‘Reduce’ on Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd for a price target of Rs 261 from Rs 343.10 on Sep 14.

“Ranbaxy has outperformed the BSE HC Index by 50% since Feb 26, 2009 (post AIP invocation). We believe the outperformance is driven by the expectation of: a) resolution of USFDA issues and hence improvement in profitability; b) one-off product specific opportunities; and c) realisation of synergy benefits.

There have been some positive developments on these fronts but we believe the extent of the stock price movement is not warranted. The market has already built in improvement in base business RoE to 16% levels, higher than even historical levels, which we believe is overly optimistic. We maintain REDUCE,” the securities firm says in a note.

“We change our estimates to build in: a) revival in revenues (ex-US) given improved macro outlook, stable FX rates and inventory re-stocking; and b) Valacyclovir launch in Dec ’09. Estimated base business RoE is 2-3% over 2010-11. Our revised target price of Rs 261 is based on SOTP valuation: a) base business at Rs 141 - assuming steady state RoE of 12% by 2014; and b) one-offs at Rs 120,” Nomura said.

Birla Shloka Edutech Ltd (Code : 511607) : Buy @74 with SL@70 & TGT 100/120

  • CMP as on Sept 25th = 74.85 (CMP Now!!!)
  • EPS = 2.52 ; Mcap = 44Cr
  • During last 5 years:-
    Lowest Price = Rs 5.23 in Jan 2005 & Highest Price = Rs 86 on Sept 10th 2009 ;
    Lowest PE = 6.67 in Jan 2005 & Highest PE = 236 in Feb 2008; Current PE = 32-35

Trigger for this call: On Aug 31st 2009 Birla Shloka Edutech, the Yash Birla group company, has filed draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with the market regulator Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI). It is planning to raise around Rs 34.78 crore via this follow-on public offer. One can download DRHP from the link below:- http://www.sebi.gov.in/dp/birlashloka.pdf

Let us have a look at the various follow-on issues in the past & future:-

  • In late 2006, Tanla Solutions also came with Follow on Public Offer raising Rs421Cr (not to forget that issue was 38 times oversubscribed). They offered 1.59 crore equity shares forming about 28.59 per cent of the fully diluted post issue paid-up capital of the company. Prior to the issue Mcap of Tanla was Rs 1000Cr. Post this issue Mcap of Tanla was Rs1400Cr. Usually when a company comes with follow-on public issues they offer 25-30% equity share post dilution to the public.
  • State-run UCO Bank, may float Rs 800-850 crore follow-on issue in the third quarter ending December 31, 2009. Presently, the government holding in UCO Bank is 64%. After the follow-on issue, the government's holding will fall to 51%. Here too you can see follow-on issue is just 13% of the equity base.
  • REC is going to issue 17 crore new shares in public offer. Equity base will rise 20% post share sale. Again, REC is coming with 20% dilution in equity thru follow-on offer.
    Earlier, the company had come out with an initial public offering (IPO) in February 2008 and raised more than Rs 1,600 crore.

What we want to convey is, that a follow-on public offer usually comes with 25-30% of the fully diluted post issue paid-up capital of the company.

Assuming the similar case in Birla Shloka Edutech Ltd.

  • Total equity share (FV = 10) at present = 59 lac
  • Birla Shloka to raise Rs 34.78 cr via follow-on offer, assuming 34.78Cr capital will be approx 30% of the Mcap post this issue. Hence, 100% of Mcap post the issue must be approx Rs 115Cr.
  • Current Mcap of this company is Rs44Cr, it has to increase to Rs80.5Cr by the time the follow on public issue hit the market. In order to justify Rs 80.5Cr valuation, share price of this company will be ruling around Rs 136 (Mcap = Rs80.5Cr with Equity Share = 59 lac).
  • Usually follow-on offer comes at the current ruling price hence, the company will issue approx 25 lac shares at Rs125-135 price band in order to raise Rs34.78Cr capital in follow on public offer.
  • Total equity share (FV = 10) post follow on issue = 59 lac + 25 lac = 84 lac shares with market price running around Rs125-135.

We have taken 2 assumptions:

  1. Company is going to issue not more than 30% of post diluted equity in follow-on offer. Based on the previous experience we have never seen a company issuing more than 30% in follow-on offer.
  2. Their follow-on offer will successfully get subscribed. Looking at the current market uptrend any education company can raise money, and this one is Yash Birla Company so we don't see any issue.

Now, if we are proved correct, then there is going to be at least upside move from Rs80 to Rs120 (to be on the conservative side) which is 50% returns in short/medium term (by the time issue hit the market). But one MUST keep the SL at 70 and enter at lower levels in case if profit booking happens.

Nikkei Comparison Suggests S&P 500 of 1400 by End of 2010 – and 400 by 2014

Merrill Lynch Asia (Bank of America) strategists Sadiq Currimbhoy, Arik Reiss, and Jacky Tang suggest that the S&P 500 could soar another 40% by December 2010 before it collapses completely based on a unique comparison with the Nikkei 225.

Uncanny Relationship Exists (with a Twist) between the Nikkei and the S&P 500.
The strategists have identified a pattern that supports the likelihood of major additional gains in the US stock market even without a strong economic recovery which suggests that the rally should continue until the end of 2010 (until Dec. 10th, 2010 to be precise). Below is an edited version of what the Merrill Lynch strategists had to say: Some investors like to compare the US to Japan. From a market perspective, plotting the Nikkei and the S&P 500 shows no similarity. However, a peculiar variation shows an uncanny relationship.

The Merrill strategists went further, constructing an equally-weighted index of all markets that have crashed more than 45% since 1970 plus the U.S. stock market crash in 1930 and then averaged the recoveries from these crashes (referred to as ‘Historical Peak-Trough Index’). They found that strong "relief rallies" are common and that, should this pattern hold for the S&P 500, then it should experience a further 40% appreciation by the end of 2010.

Specifically, they looked at all the markets since 1970 that had had crashes of more than 45% in the previous 12 months in U.S. dollar terms (or 50% in local currency terms) and added in the U.S. stock market crash of 1930 to create their equally-weighted index.

Relationship Suggests S&P 500 Will Rise to 1400-1500 before Falling Back to 400
When they the Historical Peak-Trough Index was compared to markets that have recently experienced similar deterioration (referred to as ‘Current Peak-Trough Index’) they concluded that the current S&P 500 index looks like it’s following a similar pattern and is set to peak in 15-16 months some 40% higher than the current level. That would have the S&P 500 topping out at somewhere around 1400-1500 (i.e. 5-10% less than the S&P 500’s record high of 1565 in October 2007) before crashing back to it’s 1994 low of 400 (when the stock market bubble first began) by the end of 2013 or early 2014.

Reliance Infratel & Quippo Telecom planning for IPO which will lead to rise in share price of GTL Infrastructure.

Reliance Infratel :-
  1. Plans to dilute 10% stake in IPO. Though the amount to be raised is not known, recent reports have pegged the issue size at Rs 5,000-6,000 crore. Bank of America Merrill Lynch gave Reliance Infratel a rough enterprise value of $13-14 billion in a research note earlier this month.
  2. Reliance Infratel had revenues of Rs 4,934 crore in FY09 with 48,000 towers and 75,000 tenants. In 2007, Reliance Infratel raised Rs 1,400 crore by selling a 5% stake to seven investors - George Soros, HSBC, Fortress Capital, New Silk, Galleon, DA Capital and GLG Capital. The deal valued the firm at Rs 28,000 crore back then.

GTL Infrastructure :-

  1. It has market capitalisation of around Rs 3,200 crore with a portfolio of 7-8,000 towers. Revenue of around Rs250-300Cr FY09.
  2. Now based on the number of towers Reliance Infratel (48K towers) and GTL Infra (7K towers) has, we should value GTL Infra close to Rs5000-7000Cr (which is 50-100% upside from the current valuation of Rs3200Cr.
  3. Discounting 50% in the above calculation, assuming big house backing behind Reliance Infratel and not considering # of tenants in case of GTL (no info available as such) and due to low revenue of GTL which is just Rs250-300Cr, we can at least see 50% upside in GTL Infra share price from here!!!

Another non-listed player planning for IPO is Quippo Telecom Infrastructure (QTIL) which has merged with Wireless-TT Info-Services Limited (WTTIL), the tower arm of Tata Teleservices Limited, to form the largest independent player in this space.

Hence, when there will be next wave for listing these type of tower companies in the market, we will see valuation of existing players rising to fill the gap.

- JK

Nifty may scale another 100-200 points but it will find it difficult to hold on. A correction is overdue and it may happen next week.

  • Sensex gainers comprised HDFC (3.85%), HDFC Bank (3.72%), HCL Technologies (3.54%), BPCL (3.32%) and Ranbaxy Laboratories (2.62%).
  • Losers were Hindalco Industries (-4.2%), Nalco (-3.29%), Infosys Technologies (-3.16%), Suzlon (-2.91%) and Tata Communications (-2.76%).
  • Market breadth on BSE showed 1,466 advances against 1,289 declines.
  • India's wholesale price index-based inflation rate rose 0.37 per cent in the week ended September 12 compared to 0.12 per cent a week earlier.

Dena Bank trading at a discount to book, can be a good pick around Rs64-65 levels for medium term.

  • Dena Bank (CMP Now!!!) has been showing lot of resilience and has been moving up with gradual levels with good accumulation.
  • Expect the scrip to inch up further high till Rs 68 to Rs 70 kind of trading range and one can maintain a stop loss below Rs 60 levels. Target can be around 75-80 levels in next 10 trading sessions.

2:28pm -Book complete profit in IDBI 110 Call (Sept Series) at Rs 8, buy given at 6.50. Pls exit Nifty Fut at 4975 (marginal profit/loss), don't see any active movement

This is a momentum driven market, one should not fight it, it can surprise us on the upside.

Institutional buying for the second day in metal, banking and auto stocks pushed the Nifty above the 4900 mark for the first time since May 28, 2008. It closed above 4950 for the first time since May 22, 2008. The Sensex closed at 16,679, up 225 points and the Nifty at 4,962, up 71 points, (provisional data). The Nifty September futures closed with 5 points premium.

This market is not being driven by fundamentals at this point in time; it is more liquidity-driven. In the last couple of sessions, we have seen the foreign institutional investors pumping in quite a bit of money. So as long as liquidity is there bulls will try and take the markets to higher levels. We feel that liquidity flows will continue to be robust because India, by virtue of its relatively high growth, will attract smart money in the coming quarters and coming months.

We have now broken out of an ascending triangle which was close to 100 days in the making and that was very powerful bullish signal. Once you see a corrective decline that would be a buy opportunity which could take the rally to termination point anything between 5,100 and 5,200.

South Korea is getting into the developed market. So there is a lot of portfolio rebalancing on the emerging market side. We have seen very strong FII buying yesterday also both F&O and Cash was Rs 1,500 crore. Once that type of liquidity comes in then obviously Nifty can go much higher.

Everyone is actually waiting for 4,700 and when the consensus is 4,700, market normally moves opposite from the contrarian side. That is the thing that we have seen and I guess today also we will be seeing a gap-up opening followed by short covering and market will be moving quite up.

Sector in focus: Midcap Banking Space [public sector undertaking banks (PSU)] Eg: SBI, BOI or IDBI etc.
  1. It looks very attractive; there are a lot of fundamental reasons for that. For example, from mark-to-market to held-to-maturity (HTM) category what the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is doing, will reduce the chances of provisioning losses if interest rate goes up. So everybody is thinking that the banking sector will be doing badly because the interest rate will go up but if the portfolio moves to HTM that doesn’t happen.
  2. Kharif growth which was not that great may happen in the second half and that is what RBI is also banking on. So banking sector can do well for the foreseeable future and 23-24% of the weightage is banking. So if banking moves up, Nifty also moves up. 5,200 looks likely according to me.
  3. The bond yields seems to have topped at this point of time and after climbing quite rapidly around 7.5, they are showing signs of topping out and will probably ease over the next few weeks and months. That will help the bank treasuries to show much larger gains on account of their treasury portfolio and that is keeping the overall banking sector stocks, and particularly, the midcap is on a very strong wicket.
  4. In the next quarter, and subsequently, in the second half there will be higher credit growth, assuming the banks would have better business in the second half of the year. So on that basis good amount of accumulation has also taken place and some amount of quantity has been picked-up by some of the funds in the last few days from the banking space.

There is enough amount of money sitting in the system and if the market falls by 3–5% for some reason then definitely there is going to be good buying coming in and give support to the market, which can probably, in subsequent periods, take the market up. There is a lot of aggressive play going on in the market. That’s what my sense is that the market is ready to move into real estate or ready to move into sectors that have already moved up to quite a good degree.

Gold Bullion's New Friend - China : Is $1,000 an ounce is just the start?

Nice article on Gold......just for reading purpose, we don't reco any views on Gold thru this article.

We have waited for nearly 18 months for Gold to make a convince move beyond $ 1000 an ounce, and today it seems to be closing at the NYMEX at $ 1009 an ounce. While this is sweet, the bigger event is the news emanating from China.

The government of PRC is telling its people to buy gold. What's more, every bank will sell gold and silver bullion bars in four different sizes to individuals, and China's largest bank, the ICBC, is setting up a precious metals department to handle growing investor demand.

Hong Kong is taking delivery of its gold
The tremors in the gold market began last week when Hong Kong announced it was pulling all its physical gold holdings from depositories in the UK and moving them home to newly-built vaults near the city's airport. We've said it before: wealth is moving east. Yes, Hong Kong has ambitions to be the bullion trading hub of the Orient, but there could be more to it than that.

It's estimated that they own some $63m worth of gold. In the international scheme of things, that isn't much. There might even be a banker somewhere who takes that home this year as his bonus. What is noteworthy is that Hong Kong is taking delivery of its metal.

Many gold followers have argued that if everyone who owned futures, exchange traded funds (ETFs), warrants, options, CFDs and any other gold derivative you care to mention decided to take delivery of the gold against which their contract is written, there wouldn't be enough physical metal to go around, and the price would rocket.

Indeed it was the French government's insistence in the late '60s and early '70s on taking delivery of the metal in lieu of US dollars that eventually forced the US off the gold standard in 1971. The US didn't have the physical metal to back the quantity of dollars it had put out. Gold quickly went up tenfold. Perhaps Hong Kong is taking delivery while it still can.

Just a few days later, Barrick, the world's largest gold producer, announced plans to eliminate its gold hedges. (Hedging is when a miner sells its metal before it has actually been mined in order to lock in a price.

This can work well in a falling market, as you have sold your metal for a higher price than it is when you actually mine it; but it can be a disaster in a rising market because you miss out on the higher prices).

Barrick's hedging strategy has rightly attracted a great deal of criticism. The company failed to recognise a bull market and sold its gold too cheap. The chart below shows what a costly error this has been.

The black line shows how the gold price has performed over the past ten years. The blue line shows the rise in the HUI, the index of unhedged gold miners. The comparatively feeble-looking yellow line shows Barrick's woeful share price performance over the same period. If only it hadn't hedged, it'd be up some 500% …

So costly has been Barrick's hedging strategy, a contrarian might argue that their now eliminating their hedges could mark the top of the market.

But what's interesting is that rather than deliver the gold it has sold forward, Barrick has chosen to raise cash by issuing shares and using the money – some $3.5bn – to pay off its obligations. In other words, the largest gold miner in the world thinks that it's worth buying its way out of the hedges with cash now, because it'll get a better price for its gold in the future.

Why the Chinese government is telling its people to buy gold
Meanwhile we hear that China has doubled its reserves to 1,054 tonnes. They are buying gold, 'carefully so as not to stimulate the market' says Chinese economic ambassador Cheng Siwei, reports Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in The Telegraph. Siwei continues: "Credit in China is too loose. We have a bubble in the housing market and in stocks so we have to be very careful, because this could fall down."

Is the risk that 'this could fall down' the reason that the Chinese authorities are pushing their citizens so hard to buy gold – so that they have some protection from any credit bubble collapse? Analyst Paul Mylchreest notes in his Thunder Road Report that the main, state-owned television company is promoting gold and silver as an investment.

The government is telling its people to buy gold. What's more, every bank will sell gold and silver bullion bars in four different sizes to individuals, and China's largest bank, the ICBC, is setting up a precious metals department to handle growing investor demand.

Where is all this gold going to come from? Well, if 1.3 billion people start buying one-ounce coins, heaven only knows. China is already the biggest gold producer, last year superseding South Africa. Pretty soon it will replace India as the largest consumer.

And if the Chinese authorities are pushing gold as an investment to their citizens, it obliges them to 'protect' the gold price, as Lawrence Williams of Mineweb notes. It would be tantamount to a betrayal if it fell, never mind the loss of all-important face that would result. Just as the US and the UK stepped in to bail out their banks, so China will be duty bound to prop up gold.

But the surprising strength we have seen in gold over the summer – we never really got the summer low I was looking for – suggests that somebody is already 'buying the dips' anyway. Indeed the gold price has this week repeatedly gone through $1,000 during overnight trading, only to fall back when the US markets open. That indicates that the buyers are out east somewhere. I have written about this before: Gold is shifting from West to East – along with the balance of power.

$1,000 an ounce is just the start
There are some who argue convincingly that the $1,000 will mark a double top in gold and then we'll go down from here. There are other technical indicators that suggest a top.

But there is too much impetus to force the price higher. We may hover around here for a while - in spring 2008 oil spent almost six weeks bouncing between $95 and $100 before bursting through – and $100 oil is like $1,000 gold.

Indeed there is a little bit too much bullishness about the place at the moment, so a pullback would be healthy. But once we have a break above $1,000 and a weekly close above the old high at $1,032, the news on gold will be splashed everywhere. It all points to much higher prices in time.

Friday, September 11, 2009

Have your portfolio positioned for a move down that might begin later in September.

Sept 1st 2009 - Alert : The greed factor has overrun the fear factor, expect 5-10% correction in Nifty in Sept'09. - This was the alert given by us on Sept 1st (Tue) and the next day onward we suggested our trading members to book complete profit on all the cash market positions. Next 1-2 days (Wed & Thru) market were weak but on friday, sept 4th there was sharp upside which continued on monday, sept 7th. Again from Sept 8th till today there was so called consolidation in the market, was it a consolidation or something else cooking up?

If you ask any analyst today, everyone is talking about market going to Nifty 5000 or more, but markets are populare for making most of these analyst wrong. During last 4 days, there was some kind of uneasiness seen in the market. Advance/decline is also biased towards decline.

When analyzing monthly stock market trends, We use the S&P 500 charts to identify important trend lines. The daily S&P 500 shows the rise to just above the 1,000 level at our target of 1,205 (S&P is 1041 as on Sept 11th). Average volume has been declining, though it is summer, when trading volume tends to decline.

RSI is above 50 indicating an up trend. The MACD turned down at 9-day moving average, a sell sign. The Slow Stochastic is above 80, where it will eventually turn down, giving a sell sign.
The daily chart of the S&P 500 is telling us the rally is encountering resistance and could be turning down. The indicators are telling us the current high levels could be at risk of a down turn and caution is warranted.

In addition, we are entering the two historically weak months of September and October, when the market has moved down the most. this combined with the warning in the charts, is telling us to take steps to add further down side protection, such as closing part of your longs positions, buy protective put options and sell covered calls. you might even consider buying one or more of the ETFs that short the market.

Given this analysis of the S&P 500 trend line charts, it is important to have your portfolio positioned for a move down that might begin later in September. If we do get a move down it will be important to look for the bottom as it should offer a good place to add to long positions.

When the pull back ends, look to add to long positions with stocks and ETFs from the sectors that are likely to outperform the overall market. Keep in mind, Warren Buffett's first rule of investing is to not lose money. Be patient waiting for good entry points.

Jesse Lauriston Livermore : A MUST read auto-biography for every traders.

Jesse Lauriston Livermore (July 26, 1877 — November 28, 1940), also known as the Boy Plunger, was an early 20th century stock trader. He was famed for making and losing several multi-million dollar fortunes and short selling during the stock market crashes in 1907 and 1929.

Born in Acton, Massachusetts, Jesse Livermore started his trading career at the age of fifteen. He ran away from home with his mother's blessing to escape a life of farming his father wished him to have. He then began his career by posting stock quotes at the Paine Webber brokerage in Boston.

Livermore first became famous after the Panic of 1907, when he short sold the market as it crashed. He noticed conditions where a lack of capital existed to buy stock. Accordingly, he predicted that there would be a sharp drop in prices when many speculators were simultaneously forced to sell by margin calls and a lack of credit. With the lack of capital, there would be no buyers in sight to absorb the sold stock, further driving down prices. After the crash and its aftermath, he was worth $3 million.

He proceeded to lose 90% of that 1907 fortune on a blown cotton trade. He violated many of his key rules; he listened to another person's advice (he preferred working alone) and added to a losing position. He continued losing money in the flat markets from 1908-1912. He was $1 million in debt and declared bankruptcy. He proceeded to regain his fortune and repay his creditors during the World War I bull market and resulting downtrend.

He owned a series of mansions around the world, each fully staffed with servants, a fleet of limousines, and a steel-hulled yacht for trips to Europe. He married Dorothy, a beautiful Ziegfeld Follies showgirl when he was about 40 years old.

Livermore continued to make money in the bull markets of the 1920s. In 1929, he noticed market conditions similar to that of the 1907 market. He began shorting various stocks and adding to his positions and they kept declining in price. When just about everyone in the markets lost money in the Wall Street crash of 1929, Livermore was worth $100 million after his short-selling profits.

In 1940, Livermore died at the age of 63 as the result of suicide. The police revealed that there was a suicide note of eight small handwritten pages in Livermore's personal notebook. It was reported in the November 30 issue of the New York Tribune. Although untouchable trusts and cash assets at his death totalled over $5 million, Livermore had failed to regain his trading confidence before his death. A lifelong history of clinical depression had become the dominant factor in his final years.

"All through time, people have basically acted and reacted the same way in the market as a result of: greed, fear, ignorance, and hope. That is why the numerical formations and patterns recur on a constant basis." - Livermore

"The game of speculation is the most uniformly fascinating game in the world. But it is not a game for the stupid, the mentally lazy, the person of inferior emotional balance, or the get-rich-quick adventurer. They will die poor." - Livermore

The most important rule is: In bull markets, corrections are buying opportunities.

September has historically been the worst month for stocks of the year. Plus it’s followed by October, the month of the most spectacular stock market crashes in history. This is why many bears — who have actually gotten more visible again during the past few weeks — say it’s time to get out of the market now. These seasonal stock market statistics are certainly true. And after the strong gains since the July interim low, the market is due for a correction. Link

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Alert : The greed factor has overrun the fear factor, expect 5-10% correction in Nifty in Sept'09.

Local Market Update:-
It was a dramatic U-turn on Dalal Street. The frontline indices plunged sharply in late trade, erasing all of morning’s gains. The Nifty and Sensex slipped nearly 2.5% from the day's high. The Nifty ended the day at 4,625 down 37 points, while the Sensex shut shop at 15,551 down 115 points. The midcaps too followed their bigger peers. The advance-decline ratio stood at 1:2. Meanwhile, volumes came in above average at over the one lakh crore mark.
Is this a type of trend reversal? Is this a start of yet another correction? Are we going to see similar Sept-Oct month as we saw in 2008?
JK - Technically look at the chart above, both short & long term stoch are in overbought zone & Nifty is heading towards 20 days EMA, once it crosses 20 EMA it would be a clear downtrend, hence we at SLT are issuing an alert to all our trading members, "Stay Caution in Sept month, close most of your long positions, take profits off the table in your portfolio holdings and either stay away from market or start building short position now itself."
Global Market Update:-
U.S. stocks fell on Tuesday, pushing the S&P 500 below the 1,000 threshold, as uncertainty over financial companies' health prompted a sell-off, while concerns mounted about the validity of a rally that has driven stocks up about 50 percent from March.
Facts from the past, will history repeat?
With the market debacle of September 2008 still a fresh memory, many investors are wondering if they should do things differently now that stocks are facing another potential selloff. The lesson of last year's meltdown-where many stayed in the market and saw their portfolios cut in half-seems clear: maintaining a buy-and-hold strategy no matter what's going on in the markets is passe.
  1. Navigating a Nervous Market
  2. Buy on the Dips: Strategist

Market froth over the past six months, in which the major averages have risen nearly 50 percent, has sparked memories of what began last year's massive drop from the historic highs of October 2007.

It's the reminders of what has happened since the credit crisis began, and its apex last September with the implosion of Lehman Brothers, that has inspired a mindset that investors need to be prepared for what might lie ahead.

September is Wall Street's worst month anyway, and the early results for this year's version are showing the market is demanding real growth from the economy and earnings before pushing stocks higher.

While the risk-reward scenario is probably less severe than a year ago, the sentiment for buy-and-hold that stung so many investors during the market's dramatic fall seems mostly out of vogue this year.

When the "Great Crash" came in 1929, it came in October. So, too, did the infamous "Crash of '87." And last year, during a tortuous October that led to even lower lows in the months to come, the Standard & Poor's 500 Index lost 19% of its value in just 30 days.

Investors can be excused if the word "October" is one that strikes fear into their hearts.
The trouble is, it's actually September that deals investors the toughest monthly hands.
That's September - as in the month that starts today (Tuesday).

After a rally that's seen U.S. stocks surge 53% from their March lows (including 3.5% in August, alone), "investors are wondering if September will live up to its reputation as the month in which the S&P 500 posts its worst price performance and frequency of decline.

Since 1929, September is actually the worst-performing months for stocks, with the S&P 500 suffering an average decline of 1.3% (compared to an average monthly advance of 0.5%).
