Momentum Moves: The Week Gone By
Sat, 16 Jan Momentum Moves | Brijesh Bhatia

Nifty and Sensex ended the week gaining 0.60% and 0.52% respectively.

Bulls started the week roaring but since Wednesday, the momentum seemed to be tiring. This is indicated by smaller body candles on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on the charts.

Bears grabbed an opportunity and attacked on Friday with Nifty 50 breadth falling to 6 negative stocks against 1 positive.

Tata Motors (+31.40%), Bharti Airtel (+11.55%) and ITC (+8.09) were the top 3 gainers.

Asian Paints (-8.90%), Bajaj Finserv (-5.83%) and Divi's Lab (-5.53%) were top 3 losers in Nifty 50.

Among sectorial Indices, PSU Bank Index gained the most (5.87%) followed by Auto Index (+4.49%) and Realty (+1.15%).

Metals (-2.27%), Pharma (-1.94%) and Media (-1.37%) indices ended the week in negative zone.

These 3 Stocks are the Dark Horses of the Stock Market

The mainstream media mostly ignores them.

Mutual funds and hedge funds can't buy them in bulk.

Stock brokers rarely cover them.

These stocks are the dark horses of the stock market.

They only come in limelight after they have rallied by hundreads of even thousands of percent.

Our head of smallcap research, Richa Agarwal, has a knack for identifying such stocks before they begin their rally.

Over the years, she has spotted such stocks which have gone on to offer triple and even quadruple digit gains for investors. (* Past performance is no guarantee of future results)

Today, when the markets are near all-time high... and some investors are thinking of booking profits... Richa has spotted 3 such stocks which are set for a massive rally.

She will reveal the details of these 3 stocks on 16th March at her free online summit.

The Week Ahead

Nifty has been rising week-on-week and bulls are having their best time.

In the last 10 weeks, Nifty has managed to close 9 times in positive and only once in the negative.

I believe the bulls seem to be tiring. The index is trading in overbought territory which is indicated by the RSI (Relative Strength Index).


Nifty is also trading at resistance of the 10 years rising trend line.

If we compare it with the Dollar Index, they have an inverse relationship.

Dollar Index is trading at multi-year support and Nifty at multi-year resistance.

In the video, I compare the Nifty with Dollar Index chart and share my views on this.
