The Locusts Are Coming! Are You Buying the Right Stocks?

May 29, 2020

Apurva Sheth, Editor,Profit Hunter Pro

If the coronavirus crisis wasn't enough, we must deal with locusts now. Several states in India are attacked by locusts.

I am sure you may have seen videos of locusts in cities like Jaipur which went viral on the web. As I write this piece I am getting calls and messages from relatives and colleagues that locusts have entered Mumbai.

My mom is frantically shutting every window in our house while I laugh my wits out.

Mom, it's just locusts and not a lion, I said but she ignored me and shut down each window.

My mom certainly wants to be prepared before the locusts arrive and do any damage to us or our house.

My mom was feeling relaxed after she shut down each window in our house. It didn't matter to her whether the locusts arrive or not. She was fully prepared!

And the prior warning helped her prepare and protect.

What if we had a similar warning system to protect ourselves from any downside in the market? Even better, what if we could use it to our advantage and profit from it?

Well, we already have such a system.

I'll tell you what it is but first...check out this chart.

This is the performance of agrochemicals and pesticides companies this week on the NSE.


The locust attack may have an adverse impact on food grain production and may even lead to some amount of inflation.

But what might be a crisis for some is probably turning out as opportunity for others. Most of these stocks have done quite well this week.

Locusts entered India via Pakistan about a week ago. Farmers would need pesticides to protect their standing crop. This would be a big positive for these companies.

It seems obvious now but may not have been a week ago. That's because there's lot of flow of news and information in our lives. It's difficult to filter out the signal from the noise.

Fortunately, we have a system which does that for you. The system uses nothing but price action to filter the signal.

There's actually one more reason why this stock could take off and make its early investors rich.

Smart traders would have gone ahead and bought these stocks early. This buying activity would leave certain imprints in the price action. We must know how to identify them.

  • Notice the stocks hitting new 20 day highs in the T20 list. 4 out of 20 are agro-chemical companies. I have marked them in bold. Locusts could lead to a bounty for such companies. Keep an eye.

Going Live on 30th September 6pm To Answer A Burning Question

------------------------------

A stock hitting a new 20 day high is a sign it's breaking out of last one month's trading range. Such a breakout needs good level of interest from buyers as they must absorb all the selling from traders who may have bought the stocks recently and want to book profits.

So this is an imprint of buying and acts as a signal for ones who know how to look at such data.

Now the locust may go away and these stocks might also cool off in the next few days. I can't say what will happen in the future with certainty.

But one thing I know is that whenever the next opportunity arises it will leave an imprint on my T20 list.
