Odds against us!

A recovery is not ruled out after the recent selloff. We expect the down-trend to worsen with medium term support for the Nifty likely at ~5370 levels.

If you don't prove yourself against the odds then how can you be worthy for the evens? - Anonymous.

World markets are going through yet another rough patch, with the Dow down for eight straight days. The S&P 500 is in the red for 2011. This is Wall Street’s worst losing streak since October 2008.

The initial euphoria over the US debt deal has given way to apprehensions about the health of the global economy. The eurozone credit crisis also keeps rearing its ugly head intermittently.

Risk aversion is on the rise, with the Swiss franc hitting record high versus the euro. Gold and government bonds too are seeing ‘flight-to-safety’ buying.

The opening is likely to be pretty weak amid a world-wide carnage. The rest of the day’s proceedings will hinge on how overseas markets perform. A recovery is not ruled out after the recent selloff.We expect the down-trend to worsen with medium term support for the Nifty likely at ~5370 levels.

Equities and other risky assets are not on the buying list for the time being unless you are willing to patiently wait it out. Stay lighter till the near-term uncertainties ebb. Given the global economic backdrop, India’s 8% GDP growth may not be that bad. Medium-to long-term investors could look at quality stocks at lower levels.
