How To Buy Gold For $3 An Ounce

Indian Stocks: You Want a REAL Opportunity? Know WHEN to Look for It

Stock-Markets / India May 24, 2014 - 01:52 PM GMT

Why the Nifty and many other emerging market stocks screamed "Buy!" three months ago

From Elliott Wave International's February Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast (published Feb. 7):

...Bloomberg reports that "more than $7 billion flowed from ETFs investing in developing-nation assets in January, the most since the securities were created." Such massive selling...supports our view that emerging markets are ending large-degree three-wave declines.


Conventional observers are asking the question, "Is this 1997 all over again?" (The Economist)

The way we see it, the return of such headlines in January supports another significant low now -- from a contrarian perspective.

EWI's Asian-Pacific Short Term Update editor Chris Carolan soon echoed those bullish views. Here is a forecast the APSTU made for India's Nifty Index on March 4:

The strong short-term Nifty rally has pushed prices above their upper daily Keltner channel resistance level.

Look for this [rally] up to push through the 2014 highs at 6400 in coming sessions.

The intraday Keltner channel slope is steep, indicating this trend has enough strength for sharp short-term gains.

You've already picked up on the indicators we used to turn bullish on emerging markets in general, and on India in particular:

  1. A bottoming Elliott wave pattern - and a start of a strong Elliott wave rally
  2. A bearish market sentiment extreme towards Indian stocks, evident by the panicky headlines in January-February, plus big capital outflows from emerging market ETFs
  3. The fact that the Nifty broke above a key trend channel. See those two dotted lines in the chart above? That's the Keltner channel*, a very effective trend-defining tool.

As Indian stocks progressed higher, on March 9 Chris Carolan updated his bullish forecast and added this comment about India's upcoming elections:

Bloomberg reports that the Nifty's rise to new all-time highs on [March 7] occurred "amid speculation the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party is gaining support before general elections that start next month."

But from the perspective of the Wave Principle, the index's strong advance was a textbook bullish breakout in a third-of-a-third wave advance.

Volume hit its highest level in over a year. Momentum did as well, which suggests that the day's advance was part of a third wave. The weekly Keltner channel lies almost four percent above current levels, which also supports clear sailing in the short term.

Conventional analysts can rationalize the rally any way they want, but India's...bull market will continue no matter which party wins the elections.

By the end of March, Indian stocks shot up 10%.

Then in April, the Nifty added another 4.9%.

And just this week -- the week of the elections -- both the Nifty and the Sensex hit new all-time highs.

Now, Chris Carolan says this in the May 13 Asian-Pacific Short Term Update (partial wave labels shown):

The Nifty is up 6.7% in three trading sessions...

Risk management is a never-ending task. It's always a good idea to reduce exposure when markets move dramatically.

We have to remain prepared for any outcome.
