Markets Take A Breather

Photo Credit :

It’s about time markets finally took a breather from all that running up. According to my past assessment of the chart, the markets should have taken a fall two weeks ago, but the rally has held out that much longer. That only goes to prove, time and time again, that investing in the market is a beast that is best tamed for work by more of strategy and less of prediction.

My strategy for next week is to relax and wait for the market to show some strength. This will most likely come only at the end of the week (Thursday or Friday). Some of the best techniques of investing are to learn when to trade and when to wait for an opportune moment to strike - this week looks to be more of a time to wait.

Many stocks would present good buying opportunities if Nifty falls 100- 150 points this week.
Nevertheless, here are some interesting stocks we can keep an eye on:

Reliance Industries

Trade Well
•    Until you become an experienced trader, do not risk more than your disposable income.
•    Risk no more than 0.5 - 1 per cent of your capital per trade by adjusting position size to risk.
•    Profit percentages mentioned in the column are before deduction of brokerage, taxes and slippage. That’s because each broker charges at different rates.
