Creating Awareness

Markets this week

It was an unforgettable week in the markets, marked by dramatic moves and broken expectations, yet culminating in a new all-time high close. Despite anticipating a stronger government outcome, which did not materialize, and the opposition narrowly missing governance, the market displayed resilience. The market’s performance, reaching an all-time high, serves as the ultimate indicator of current sentiment and confidence, underscoring that the market’s perception is undeniably positive.

Nifty experienced significant volatility earlier this week. Initially, there was a rally driven by positive exit poll predictions, suggesting a comfortable victory. However, when actual election results indicated a closer outcome, nearing a hung parliament, the market faced a sharp decline. Despite the initial negative reaction and media narrative emphasizing the unexpected results, the market rebounded once it assessed the actual numbers, realizing they weren’t as bad as perceived.

The market closed at a new all-time high of around 23,270, marking a remarkable recovery. This week saw an unprecedented market candle where Nifty started at a new high, plunged to lows not seen in three to four months, and then recovered to close at a new high. This historical movement established the 21,200 mark as a crucial support level. Moving forward, as long as this level holds, the market is expected to remain stable, possibly entering a consolidation phase.

WeekendInvesting Strategy Spotlight

You Can’t Ignore This Index!

The Nifty Next 50 Index (Nifty Junior) is a crucial index that has significantly outperformed other indices since November 2023.

Key points about its performance and characteristics include:

Long-Term Performance: From the 2008 GFC bottom, Nifty is up 780%, CNX Small Cap is up 1140%, but Nifty Junior has outperformed both, with a 1760% increase.

Recent Performance: Since November 2023, Nifty is up 22%, Nifty Small Cap is up 35%, Nifty Mid Cap is up 38%, but Nifty Junior has surged by 59.6%.

Nifty Junior includes the best-performing mid-cap stocks (ranked 101 to 250 by market cap). These stocks often rise into the Nifty Junior from the mid-cap segment and may graduate to the Nifty 50. However, they tend to perform best while in the Nifty Junior due to less exposure and over-research compared to when they move to the Nifty 50.

When Nifty 50 stocks drop into Nifty Junior, they often start performing well again as investors move out.

Mi NNF 10 strategy focuses on extracting alpha from the Nifty Junior while minimizing downside risk through a monthly rotational strategy. This involves replacing losing momentum stocks with stronger ones, leading to consistent outperformance over the years.

The Nifty Junior’s unique position and dynamic composition make it a prime index for capturing high growth potential with systematic risk management.
