Outlook for 14 August, 2008:-
Nifty is breaking down slowly and break below 4450 can bring in more selling. Resistance stands at 4600 and the downside may be 4320 to 4260 levels.
Our target for the Sensex was around 15500 which has happened and one need not play with full strength for the remaining 700-1000 points, even if they really materialize. Keeping 60-70% cash is advised as risk-reward is not favourable at these levels.
Markets to open flat to negative. Long weekend and inflation figures can make market players remain light on positions. Banks and Realty can see more selling pressure.
Ideas for Trading (for short-term position):-
DLF (548):- The stock is looking weak and can test 475-485 levels. Closing past 580 will negate the view.
