Shall we start doing bottom fishing? – No, it’s time for building/raising CASH allocation. Conversation between our members & our analyst Member: What do you think, where market is likely to go? Analyst: Based on our previous market outlook report, send on Nov 24th 2010, we are expecting a correction of 25-30% in H1 2011. Correction might have started in Nov 2010 and we might see a small relief rally in Dec 2010. Sometime after MOIL listing when the euphoria of retail investors will be at peak, we are expecting fresh round of selling to start. We have been advising 40 - 50% of cash allocation and to take profits in various counters. Member: I have not sold any stocks, do I get chance in Dec 2010 to exit? Analyst: We would advice you to partially book profit, exit from few counters after consulting with us and make sure that you have at least 40-50% cash in hand by end of Dec 2010. There are high probability of year end rally to take place before next round of selling but it is advisable to slowly exit few counters and raise cash levels. Member: Most of the small/mid caps stocks has fallen down by 20-30% or more, shall I go ahead and buy? Analyst: Small qty of selective stock buying can be done at current levels but only after maintaining healthy cash levels of 40-50%. Focus must be on raising cash rather than doing bottom fishing. Please avoid any kind of major buying at this point of time. We will keep you advising on when/what to buy when the right time comes.
Do selective stocks buying in Dec’10. At right time, we will advice you list of stocks to accumulate. Member: Do I need to buy/sell TMP or MMP Stocks to raise cash levels?

These portfolios will be able to achieve long term goals in spite of downturn in the market because each portfolio has kept cash levels up to 40%. Member: What shall I do with your reco coming in Dec & Jan etc? Do I need to buy them? Analyst: While sending the reco, we will advice you on the exposure you need to take at CMP. of the stock.You need to follow accordingly.

Don’t listen to Brokerage house bullish views, listen to an independent research company - HBJ Member: I have got a mail from my brokerage house saying that market will be bullish in Jan-Mar’11 and we can see higher levels, is it true? Analyst: A Brokerage house will always show good optimistic future to you because they don’t want you to get fear and stop trading. Their income is your brokerage hence they will show rosy picture even in dull market. Team HBJ Capital knows that our 1st duty is to protect your wealth and 2nd is to grow your wealth, hence what is TRUE is what we will say. We may not be right always but yes, we will always try to be truthful. Member: Penny/Small Caps are down by 20-40% from their peak, shall I go ahead and buy them? Analyst: We do not advice buying at this moment in spite of attractive price because sentiments are very bad and after all markets are driven by sentiments so let the fall gets over, let the speculative money exit the counters, let the dust settled down before buying anything. Usually fall in large caps are followed by fall in small/mid-caps but this time it is other way round, hence when index will fall further which is more likely, we will see small/mid-caps going down further. Member: India is domestic demand driven country, we can de-couple from the world and grow, why do we need to bother about US or UK problems? Analyst: Our real economy is definitely a domestic demand driven because we don’t depends on exports but our stock markets are ruled by foreign money, hence follow the smart money or fat boys.
Fear of price rigging and murky dealings• At this juncture, traders just do not know which stock would be next to fall. Every stock which falls sharply, they suspect price rigging and some murky dealings.Few days back, a bunch of stocks were reported to being investigated by CBI. Ruchi Soya, KS Oils, Karuturi Global etc are suspected of price rigging. The news is that market operator, Vimal Rathod was accumulating shares of these companies on behalf of NRI investor C Shivasankaran or Siva as he is better known, based on insider information. The modus operandi was – pick up stake in these companies, then engineer a massive fall in the prices, then pick up major chunks of shares thro’ various shell companies and then take the price to new heights and sell the entire stake at that high. Price rigging is suspected to have happened with the promoters involved.Why did the CBI zero on these companies only now? Siva holds stake in Sing Tel which was one of the beneficiaries of A Rajas largesses in 2G scam. And once the CBI started unraveling this tight knot, it led to Siva’s other murky operations and thus to Ruchi Soya and KS Oils and Karuturi. He has recently picked up (officially) a 2.99% stake through open market purchases in Karuturi Global. Prior to that, he picked up 11.63% in Ruchi Soya and then 4.29% into KS Oils.There was also the news on 2nd December of Ketan Parekh being very much active in the markets and this time around, he is said to have honed into stocks like Pipavav Shipyard, Amtek Auto, Orchid Chemicals, GMR Infrastructure, Cairn India, Deccan Chronicles Holdings, Reliance Industries, Punj Lloyd, Indiabulls Real Estate and the list is endless.
The traders are completely spookedThat’s not all. Last week, the Securities and Exchange Board of India pulled up promoters of four companies -- Welspun Corp, Ackruti City, Murli Industries and Brushman India -- for allegedly rigging their own stocks. The promoters of these companies allegedly colluded with stock market operators, Sanjay Dangi and his associates and the Ashika Group, to manipulate their stock prices. Following Sebis orders, stock prices of these companies fell sharply. Ackruti City, Welspun Corp and Murli Industries fell by 20, 27 and 20 per cent, respectively, the next day. While many operator-driven stocks allow traders to make a quick buck, for retail investors who have invested in these stocks, things could be difficult.• How does one know if the stock is operator manipulated or sentiment driven?Difficult task but what one can do is keep a sharp eye on the price movements. If share price fluctuates very sharply and price does not justify the fundamentals, clearly something is amiss. Small companies typically are breeding grounds for such operators and best to stay away from them.What about companies where promoters could manipulate the books to show bumper numbers?Such manipulation is not sustainable over the long run, so watch out for quarter numbers and that should be able to give you even the slightest inkling of any manipulation. There are companies which have a tarnished reputation but to wash that blemish, they change the name of the company or float other companies. But unfortunately, character does not change. So the same routine can be seen in companies whose promoters have a track record of insider trading.
You cant beat the Fat Boys, you can join them.Evidences mentioned below points to a top in the market during Dec 2010. You can also see how Fat Boys has sold Puts in Oct’10, brought down markets in late Nov’10 and most likely to cover their shorts in Dec’10. You can see how smart money who knows the rules of the game is playing with retail money.Back in October everyone was certain that the markets were going to fall. We suggested that nothing was going to happen in Oct’10 because the public were cautioned & buying puts as insurance and the Fat Boys were selling them (writing Puts). At the same time the Fat Boys were going short (Selling Nifty etc). We suggested a new highs in Oct’10 or early Nov’10 followed by a pullback (down ward) into the 3rd week of November which we have already seen.That is what has happened. Now we see the puts expired worthless and the Fat Boys are back knocking at the door, looking to cover their shorts. We have a nasty looking head and shoulders top forming as well. The public and small funds are teetering on the precipice of another sell off. The tone of the media has turned more bearish and they are already trotting out the bears . This time there is no signs of traders buying protection against a market decline.We are already down 10% from the peak and Fat Boys are most likely to cover their short position sooner or later which will create a temporary bounce in the market during Dec’10, call it relief rally or call it a pullback rally, but it will be short lived.
If you are not with market movers you are a victim.During last 3 weeks of Nov’10 we have seen market falling by 10-12% from the peak. One can expect a relief rally of 4-5% in Dec’10 followed by further fall which will spread across 1st half of 2011.We would advice you to build your cash position in Dec’10 & go slow in fresh buying. Listing of MOIL which is expected with 35-50% gain on Dec 15th 2010 will bring maximum euphoria among retail investors hence it will be best time for Fat Boys to start fresh round of sell-off.
Just follow the Fat Boys (Market Movers)Fat Boys made money in Oct’10 by Selling Puts and making money in Nov’10 by Selling Calls. You can see in the previous page, Nifty chart for last 6 months. It graphically shows how we reached the point we are at now. We have formed a head and shoulders top pattern because of the dynamics created when the public loaded up on puts in Oct’10 months to try and beat the Fat Boys. The put options all expired worthless and the Fat Boys kept the premium. Now in Nov’10 public was not buying any insurance (they though since the market did not fell down in Oct’10 so it will not fall in Nov’10 also). On top of that, they loaded long and are totally exposed. Coal India, IPO has made good amount of money for retail investors and that was the best time when Fat Boys can start selling because public were ready to buy anything & everything. It’s very simple do just opposite to the whole masses.Heres the thing – A year end rally followed by the fall. Look what happened when we topped out the rally in early 2010. Due to cyclicality, we fell back into February. If we top out and start to fall now, we should fall all the way into February again and it wont be pretty. My point is that it is too early to start down into the next cycle low. We have to be open to a solid year end rally occurring again this year.Why do we expect year end rally? There are two fundamental reasons. First of all, we know Bernanke and co. want to see higher asset prices. They probably dont want a stock market plunge putting a damper on our Christmas spirit and purse strings either. Secondly, there are a lot of Christmas bonuses tied to fund performance at year end. If you are the Fat Boys, why not let the funds buy the price up into a strong, year ending close.
Sovereign Debt Default / Bailout and Contagion Risk Graph - November 2010Iceland, Greece & Ireland are bailed out. Portugal is next with Belgium and Spain to trigger a probable bailout of sorts during the next 12 months. However it is possible that a line could be drawn under the bankrupting PIGIBS with Spain, especially if new mechanisms are introduced by the Euro zone for a more orderly partial debt restructuring that is able to release pressures on the likes of Italy and France and therefore have far less of a contagion effect. Next round of sell-off in stock market will be the side effect of debt default from Euro zone.
New phase of debt crisis! Striking NOW! • Europe was sinking deeper into a new, more severe phase of its sovereign debt crisis. This crisis is unfolding despite Herculean rescues by the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and the U.S. Federal Reserve. It’s striking right now. And it’s threatening to spread to all of the world’s big debtor nations, including the biggest of all — the United States. • The Real Trauma of The Irish Debt Crisis . Default insurance is the telltale indicator. • And right now, the cost of insuring €10 million of 5-year Irish government bonds against default has skyrocketed — to an extremely high €600,000. • That’s 55 percent more than it cost for the same insurance in the aftermath of the Lehman Brothers failure — a time when it seemed the entire world was on the brink of collapse. • It’s 50 percent more than the cost of insuring equivalent Greek debt at the peak of Greece’s first round of financial difficulties earlier this year. • It’s at least DOUBLE the cost of insuring the debts of deeply troubled lesser nations like Romania, Lebanon, Latvia, and even Iceland. • Most shocking of all, today’s €600,000 price tag for Irish default insurance is higher than it was BEFORE the European Union and IMF first announced their intent to engineer a $113 billion rescue for Ireland just eight days ago. • Earlier this year, when Europe announced a similar bailout for Greece, traders in this kind of insurance — credit default swaps — gave Greece at least a 30-day reprieve. Now, they’ve given Ireland no more than three days. • Investors obviously don’t believe promises by politicians anymore.
Will U.S.A become like Japan? – No Way!Let’s Start With a Little 1990s History in Japan…Japan’s economic malaise began with twin bubbles — first in its stock market, which peaked in 1989, and then in real estate two years later. Since then, the country’s overall debt levels have skyrocketed to more than twice the country’s GDP … its economic output has been rising less than 1 percent a year on average … and consumer prices have fallen in seven of the last ten years.And all that has happened in spite of the fact that the Japan’s central bank has kept interest rates at or near zero for nearly a decade! Japan try other relatively experimental approaches such as “quantitative easing,” in which the central bank openly buys loans, securities and other assets. For a few years it looked like a turnaround was coming, but those hopes were dashed by the recent global economic meltdown. And today, despite all its efforts, Japan is still waiting for a sustained rebound.We are lucky to be in India……The U.S. is also much different than Japan in terms of its demographics, trade balance, financial system, savings rate, and position on the global stage. And even the fact that the Fed remains extremely concerned about the risk of deflation represents a level of commitment that Japan’s policymakers lacked in the first few years after their crisis.This battle is far more global in its nature — especially because Europe is wrestling with its own massive problems. Best way is to invest in emerging economies like China, India, Brazil etc
Buy Gold ETF & Crude Future In general, commodities tend to have a up move when the U.S. dollar is weak, and a down move when the greenback strengthens. With news of a compromise on extending the Bush tax cuts, recent strength in the U.S. dollar, and signals from China it may raise interest rates, commodities are likely to fall for short term. Gold : Outlook for gold is bearish for short term & bullish for second half of 2011. The current correction could be attributed to profit booking, still would prove to be safest investment vehicle.You should wait for next 1-3 months and buy Gold ETF only after the short term fall is complete. Allocate a part of the portfolio in order to diversify & mitigate risk. Crude: We can expect a short term correction in crude during next 1-3 months followed by upside. Go long in Crude future only after correction is done. It seems to be momentum based buying but still technically a "buy on dips" story.
