DoomsDay Scenarios -Nifty

Well today, we looked at the monthly charts of Nifty 50 – to get a long term picture.
The big picture looks scary .
NIFTY 2022 05 14 14 03 25
Monthly Chart Nifty50
As per  the Elliot theory, we have completed Wave 1 (after Triple Top) and now we are in Wave 2.
NIFTY 2022 05 15 06 31 51
Weekly Chart -Nifty 50
Wave 2 happens to be deep (unless we’re starting a new bull run but that is not the case here)….we have already done 23% (1st Fib level) and are now heading to 38% ,near 14473.

And  near to 38%, level 14417 also happens to be previous ivth wave low, many of the corrections stop at this level.
Also as per stage analysis ,we are in Stage 4 .
Can the correction extend to 50% (between 38% and 50 % ,we might have support near 40 months average at 14070 ) or 62% ?
Critical Levels:
So 38 %  level (14473) , previous ivth wave low of 14417 and 40 months average of 14070 are the crucial levels to watch for. (betweeen 14000 to 14417)
If these levels break, then correction can go more deep .
RSI as well as MACD cycles are yet to complete their cycles !
What if montly MACD  as well as monthly RSI don’t complete their full cycle at 38% or 50%  fib-levels ….in that case ,we are clealrly headed towards very dark days.

Historical PE

Other aspect we looked at historical NIFTY PE chart.

354 Nifty 50 PE Vs Nifty Chart

In the past, during the severe falls, Nifty has taken support in between PE of 10-15.
If we take 15, the fall should be contained near 12000, but what if Nifty happens to take support at PE of 10, then only God can save us.

FII Support -Possible ?

Can FII support  the market in coming months?
Well, does not look like.
Every country’s currency was depreciating whereas  the same for many countries were holding (including Indian currency) But FIIs were expecting that we can’t stand against this global tide so they were selling beforehand (smart move)
USDINR 2022 05 14 14 32 20
USDINR 2022 05 14 14 32 20
And now INR has broken out – in a beautiful Stage 2 breakout ( as per this model’s projection , it is headed towards anywhere between 85-95).
So FII would wait  for this  currency move to play out completely before bringing the fresh  money is – two obviuos benefits for them
a) They get more rupees for less dollar so their amount goes up by just sitting oversead and waiting
b) As currency depreciates, market tumbles and they get everything cheaper.

US Inflation -The Joker in the Pack

Us Inflation is moving higher – highest in the decades.

us inflation
us inflation

US Fed is trying hard to control inflation by raising interest rates – thus sucking liquidity from all capital markets. The risk is recession in US but it seems Fed has accepted that reality – now fight is between mild-recession or severe recession.

Also US FED wants to saves its Bond market in lieu of its issues with Russia and China – and wants people to buy its bonds ( by creating fear around equity). And it seems to be succeding.

As of now it seems that FED is not reversing its stated policy.

Till the time it does not reverse, very less hope for global equity markets- the butterfly effect

Hangover Effect of Heady Cocktail (Nasdaq+Fed+Inflation)

In the past whenever US markets fell, US FED came to help as some of the public is invested in stocks so it wanted to save them.

But look at the inflation chart and the following chart …in the past when FED came to help by decreasing interest rates by doing QE  ,in those years inflation was not an issue.

But this time -दोस्त  (FED) खुद ही मुश्किल में है. Political bosses want Fed to focus on inflation-control as otherwise they may loose votes.

Now with these rates hikes by FED, US inflation is yet to come under control but  all emerging markets are falling .



Because :

a) Currencies of EMs are depreciating, FIIs fear that they would fall more due dollar strength so they are selling out in all emerging markets.

b) Various foriegn nations and companies have dollar denominated debt, with falling currencies their debt level as well as interest payouts are going up mthus affecting the whole valuations models

c) To fight currency depreciationtion as well as to fight infla, Central Banks (including ours, RBI) of almost all the countries are increasing interest rates. Increased interest rates means lower demand and higher interest cost for the companies – so impact on revenue as well as earnings.

The vicious cycle is on.

Summary – it is a bit depressing picture. Hopefully we would do better than this and there won’t be any doomsdays.

If the worst comes, how It would play out?

No market moves  in a straight line .

Here are the 2 of the several likely paths to the downside.

Picture2 1

Path 1 – We stop at 15671 -March lows

Path 2– We stop near 14400-450 levels  (W) , bounce back in X and then again plunge upto level Y

Path 3 – And if market wants move  towards  11900 & beyond, then it can bounce back in X again  (after Y ) and go upto Z as a final move.
