SOLID START to FY 2024 ! After taking support around 16900 levels, Nifty sprung up to clock 4% in the last 5 sessions but one aspect to notice is that Nifty has been making lower highs and lower lows since Dec 2022 and we would need to get out of this downtrend by breaking out of the previous lower high which is also an important resistance level of 17800 which would in turn confirm the beginning of a reversal in trend. Nifty also closed above it’s 200 DMA which is also a good sign.
Smallcaps led the rally clocking 3.8% while Nifty returned 3%. Let us hope that we continue on this good start and do well in the times to come.
This week was incredible for REALTY which returned a whopping 6% while other sectors like INFRA, BANKS and AUTO mirrored Nifty’s gains. Overall, the last month has been tough for all sectors barring defensive sectors like the PHARMA & FMCG. IT and PSU BANKS continue to remain the weakest in the lot having returned (-5%) in the last 30 days.
A very good week for almost all Weekendinvesting strategies which performed in line with their respective benchmarks. Midcaps and Smallcap based strategies had a superb outing with Mi 25 leading the pack having clocked a superb 3.5% while Mi 20, Mi 50 & Mi 35 took the next three positions. After a difficult last year, we are all pumped with this solid start to FY 24 and hope this carries on to help us get out of the recent drawdowns.
A SHORT COURSE to Help you Stay Calm in All Market Conditions
Usually, quick – sharp corrections amidst a Bull Run creates ambiguity in the minds of lots of new investors. The most important question we often get asked is whether markets will crash from here. Should we exit? and a few other questions like these. We have made several videos to help you clarify many such questions and help you have the RIGHT MINDSET for a rewarding journey in investing.
We have put together a few of our previous Daily Bytes which we think might be relevant for times like these. Do have a look and send us your thoughts, questions or comments if any.
The smallcase products are all LONG ONLY products that invest in various subsegments of the markets but have the momentum theme underlying in all of them. The strategies will pick strong outperforming stocks and remove weak ones once a week (except Mi NNF10, Mi EverGreen & Mi India Top 10 which is monthly rebalanced)
These are all long-term strategies that will create enormous wealth in each upswing and then maybe give some back in the downswing and repeat this process again and again achieving the compounding effect. With patience and grit to follow strategy over ups and downs over the last nearly five years, it has been shown that much superior CAGR returns are possible than the benchmarks.
FY22 was also superb and I will let the numbers speak for themselves. You may read the Consolidated FY22 report.
We give advance notice here on the upcoming changes in your smallcase for Monday. This advance notice can be used to ignore Monday’s update if there is no change. If there is a change indicated you can use the smallcase app or log in to weekendinvesting.smallcase.com to see the rebalance. A backup email is sent by mid-day Monday if you have not rebalanced by then and yet another one a day later.
Note: We are not including LIQUIDBEES as an ADD or an EXIT count. The upcoming rebalance on 03 Apr 2023 will be a biannual rebalance where stocks are updated as per changing underlying indices and weights shall be recalibrated back to original weights as per the composition of the respective strategies (Mi20, Mi35, Evergreen specifically)
The performance of all strategies across various timeframes are listed below.

STAIRS Revamped Models
STAIRS is a LONG / SHORT derivative strategy that is designed to offer an uncorrelated diversification option to your equity portfolio. STAIRS will do well when there are up trends & also when there are down trends while giving up some of the gains when markets remain rangebound/volatile.
You may go through our latest weekly report for more details.
All STAIRS models go in line with our fundamental philosophy of making the most and compounding aggressively when markets give us trends and go very defensive as trends fizzle out and enter a rangebound territory, thus providing robust capital & profit protection.
Effectively – STAIRS is a complete trading system (Futures & Options) that covers each of the following decisions required for a successful trading outcome:
• Markets – What to buy or sell?
• Position Sizing – How much to buy or sell?
• Entries – When to buy or sell?
• Stops – When to get out of a losing position?
• Exits – When to get out of a winning position?
We also run a dedicated telegram channel for STAIRS which you may join using the below link.
