PSU Banks Will Move Up Again

Oct 27, 2020

Editor's note: Yesterday, India's #1 trader Vijay Bhambwani, recorded a video on the most profitable segment of the market today - PSU stocks. That's right. PSUs are the hottest stocks in the market today...and you read about it first right here in Profit Hunter. We published this piece on PSU Banks by Apurva Sheth about 3 weeks ago. It makes sense to revisit it now that PSU stocks have started to run up.

Have you ever felt that you have lived the present situation before?

It's called Deja vu.

Right now, I'm experiencing a deja vu moment in the markets.

Banks were going through tough times even before the pandemic struck. Covid-19 amplified the effects.

But banks going through tough times isn't new.

They were in a similar situation back in 2016. Private sector banks were relatively better compared to PSU banks.

PSU banks were dealing with Non-Performing Assets (NPA) and big losses in March 2016. Here's how the headlines read back then.

If you have been following the news recently then you would know their situation is the same. The Covid-19 outbreak and the moratorium which followed has simply broken their back.

Common investors would run away from PSU banks at such times.

But you must not!

India's Secret Plan to Beat China Takes Shape

China is playing dirty since the past few months.

Under the garb of military exercises, they shored up their troops at the border region in Ladakh.

What do they want? A war with India?

If that's the case, then India needs to be more ready than ever before.

India has already started deploying high-tech weapons at our borders.

It is estimated that the Indian government could spend over Rs 4 lakh crore on such defence equipment over next 5-7 years...

Pumping hundreds or even thousands of crores into a few Indian defence companies in the coming years...

As a result, select Indian defence companies could benefit in a huge way... and their stock prices could shoot up like never before...

Especially this one stock, which we call India's #1 defence stock.

It's a potential 10x opportunity in the long term.

We'll reveal all the details about this huge opportunity at our Explosive Profits Summit.

I believe there is no better time than right now for making an investment in PSU banks.

And I am not saying this based on a hunch or gut feeling.

I have lived through a similar moment back in 2016 and even guided my subscribers to solid profits in PSU banks back then.

I believe the worst seems to be over for PSU banks. Here's a weekly chart of Nifty PSU Bank index.


PSU Banks are forming bullish divergence in Relative Strength Index (RSI) on weekly charts. RSI is a momentum indicator which shows the strength of the trend.

A bullish divergence in RSI indicates that the ongoing downtrend is losing steam. This doesn't guarantee a reversal but increases the chances.

The adjacent illustration will help you identify a bullish divergence in RSI.

You will notice that the price is in a downtrend and RSI is also falling along with it initially.

However, the RSI starts forming higher lows when price is still forming lower lows. This acts a signal that the ongoing trend may reverse.

If you want to know how to trade the RSI divergences then you can read my detailed article on Contrarian Trading with the RSI I wrote back in 2016.

Now here's the fun part.

It's not just the PSU bank index which is forming a bullish divergence with RSI. Several PSU banking stocks are also forming similar pattern on the weekly chart like they did back in 2016. I'm sharing some of them here.

  1. State Bank of India - It could arguably be one of the most hated stock in the market right now. But look at the pattern which is forming after the hitting the support level of 140.


    I have also recorded a video on the greed and fear cycle in SBI.

  2. Punjab National Bank - It is forming a double bottom or 'W' pattern on the weekly chart just like it did back in 2016.

  3. Bank of Baroda - It's an exception as there wasn't any divergence back in 2016. But look at the bullish divergence now - MASSIVE.

  4. Canara Bank - The divergence in 2016 was tiny. But look at the divergence now and that too from deeply oversold levels.

  5. Bank of India - It's among the better performing PSU stocks. It hit a low of 30 in March 2020 and almost doubled till June before slipping lower. But look at the RSI still placed far above its previous lows.


Now you can see from the charts how PSU Banks fared after forming the bullish divergences in 2016. All these stocks generated phenomenal returns.

They did well for my subscribers back in 2016.

Here's a piece I wrote on My Contrarian Trades in the PSU Banking Space back in July 2016.

Now just because something has worked in the past doesn't guarantee that it will work in the present as well. However, it does increase the probability of the investment going in your favour.

Nevertheless, you should be disciplined and manage your risk well so that you doesn't lose much even if the investment doesn't work as expected.
