The market was non-directional this week and while Bank Nifty slipped through the week Nifty picked up some strength in the latter half of the week.
The week was marred with overnight global whiplashes that caused the non trending motion and this resulted in further drawdown on our trend following STAIRS program. The strategy lost about 3 pct in the week . STAIRS however is still up nicely for the year and just a few good good trades can recoup all that is lost.
The Options4STAIRS module of STAIRS has been soft launched. The model so far only has buy options strategy that will mirror the STAIRS trends. This is offered as part of the existing STAIRS strategy and users will be able to utilize the STAIRS advantage using lower capital and defined risk strategies. More details can be obtained on email.
The smallcases all are doing well and gained even in a mediocre week. The gains in both MiMTAllcap and MiSTATH have been phenomenal and while the market does look a bit heated up these strategies should be invested into at every sharp drop. The new SEBI dictat should benefit all smallcases with smallcap exposure. Mi25 should benefit the most.
For Monday 14 SEP 2020, the proposed changes are:
Mi_LT_CNX200 :NO CHANGE.
Mi_MT_Allcap : NO CHANGE.
Mi_ST_ATH :2 ADDS
Mi 25 :NO CHANGE.
In the LIVE product strategies, all products gained handsomely with Mi25 and Mi50 standing out. The LIVE products provides a mature ground for more diversified and lower risk strategies than the smallcases and are suited for larger portfolios.
All in all a mixed bag of a week. Lets hope for some sun shine in the next
That is all this week. STAY SAFE and stay in peace !
