-"The Technical structure of Nifty has been altered or say reversed compared to last weekend" (Opening statement)

-"Trading is now below 50 dma ,which now will act as a Resistance and may be tested for whipsaws." (Moving Averages)

Update on 01-08-11:
"As expected Nifty gave an upmove and was resisted in 5530-5550 zone.
Nifty is good above 5480 now "
Update on 02-08-11:
"The indication of strength in short term ,trading above 5480 level, mentioned yesterday, was broken in first few minutes of trade and never recovered."
"The bias is firmly Down trading below 50dma now."
"If the Preferable EW count in the Weekend post - Click Here holds good that we are in the 3rd wave , then a fast move to apprx. 5300 and then below it is on the cards."
Update on 03-08-11:
"Nifty in firm Downtrend."
"Close below longterm Trendline at 5425 apprx. level".
"Keep 5485 as SAR for trade and manage if gets hit. (for any reversal and locking in profits and also incase of whipsaw to re ride the downtrend) "
Update on 04-08-11:(Before the Global Mkt. collapse)
"Having said that I dont see a Bottom / Reversal still in place."
"Remember , We dont have control over Markets but only on our actions to manage the trade , also we will never get the Top or Bottom so taking out most of a Trending move is the next best thing."
This has been a good Week to trade because of a onesided expected Trending Downmove holding true. Generally such moves form only about 20% of the time span , rest is rangebound trading of some kind. The Analysis and the Execution should take care of both the Trending and Rangebound sideways Market to emerge an overall Winner .
