Trans Atlantic Triggers - Did You Receive Those Signals?

Did you receive those wealth creating signals we discussed in the blog post on 08 Nov 2009. For your quick reference here's the link - http://archana-archdeb.blogspot.com/2009/11/sensex-and-nifty-expected-movement.html. In that post we had understood that Nifty and Sensex will get a boost to scale higher heights only if there were positive signals from US markets. In that scenario Dow would close above 10160. We named those signals as Trans-Atlantic Triggers or TAT in short.

On 06 Nov 2009 Nifty closed at 4796 and Sensex closed at 16164 before the weekend. After markets opened from weekend break, Dow roared across 10160 and closed at 10227. Benign signals from US markets or positive TATs have helped Sensex touch 16914. Similarly Nifty could manage to touch high of 5018. If you were able to discern those positive TATs then you would surely have made some neat profit in trade.

Now is the time which is baffling and puzzling. As discussed in the last post (http://archana-archdeb.blogspot.com/2009/11/is-dow-jones-following-rule-book.html) Dow Jones has reached its target of 10360, which means that there will be serious correction in US markets from here on. However Nifty and Sensex have yet to reach their short term targets before tipping over. Nifty should find rigorous selling pressure in the selling zone of 5320 and 5580. Sensex on other hand should experience serious selling bouts in selling zone of 18000 and 18880. All these selling zones have already been discussed in my 8th November post which can be accessed from the first link on this post. But the dilemma is that since Dow has achieved its target, will Nifty and Sensex now achieve their targets as outlined above?

Lets see what the future holds for Indian markets from here on. Nifty and Sensex should reach their respective selling zones before correcting. Whatever be the case, its time to observe some caution on the long side since Dow has reached its short term top.
