Markets this week !

Nifty witnessed an incredible rally that many investors were eagerly waiting for. After several weeks of correction and sideways movement, the Nifty finally broke out above the 19,570 region. As a result, we closed the week at an all-time high of 19,819 on the Nifty weekly chart. This milestone demonstrates the strength of the Indian market compared to the rest of the world.

Furthermore, the market is experiencing robust fund flows, with domestic flows matching the outflows from FIIs. This positive trend indicates a healthy and sustainable market environment. 

Sectoral Trends

To understand the sector-wise performance, let’s take a look at the sectoral momentum table. Real estate continues to be the primary mover in the market, holding the top spot on both the 10-day and 20-day basis. Public sector enterprises rank second, followed by metals, media, and energy sectors. By studying these trends, you can identify sectors that have remained strong over various time frames, such as three months, one month, three weeks, and one and a half weeks.

In terms of sectoral performance this week, public sector enterprises had the highest momentum with a 6% increase, followed by real estate (4.9%), energy (4.2%), PSU banks (3.7%), infrastructures (3.5%), and commodity stocks (2.9%). On the other hand, Pharma witnessed a sudden collapse in rank from 4 to 17. However, sectors like autos, commodities, metals, and real estate showed positive moves, indicating potential opportunities for investors.

WeekendInvesting strategies Performance

Now, let’s take a look at the performance of different strategies offered by Weekend Investing. Mi ATH 2, an aggressive strategy, recorded a remarkable 9.2% gain for the week, making it the top-performing strategy. Mi 20 and Mi MT Allcap strategies also showed impressive performance with gains of 6.4% and 4.7% respectively. It’s important to note that these strategies have consistently delivered strong returns over the financial year, with gains ranging from 50% to 66%. This highlights the potential of these strategies to add alpha to your portfolio when used as a satellite strategy.

Remember, investing is a long-term journey, and trying to time the market based on fear or greed is unlikely to yield successful results. Instead, focus on your investment strategy, stay well-diversified, and continue adding to your portfolio over time. By doing so, you can reap the rewards of consistent and disciplined investing.

Spotlight – Mi ATH 2 !

This week’s spotlight strategy is Mi ATH 2, which has been on a remarkable run lately. Over the past one month, the strategy has recorded a gain of 23%, outperforming the index by a substantial margin. Over the past three months, the strategy has delivered a staggering 32% return, showcasing the strategy’s strength in volatile market conditions. Moreover, the long-term CAGR for the strategy has witnessed a significant increase, indicating its ability to generate consistent returns over time.

Despite the initial drawdown in the first year, Mi ATH 2 has managed to recover and match benchmark returns. This highlights the importance of staying committed to your investment strategy, even during challenging periods. So, it’s crucial to focus on the long-term objectives and avoid making impulsive decisions based on short-term market movements.

Overall, the latest market trends and performance of different strategies indicate promising opportunities and potential for positive returns. As an investor, it’s important to stay disciplined, adhere to your investment strategy, and consider diversifying your portfolio with different strategies to capitalize on market movements and add alpha.

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.

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 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 performance of all strategies across various timeframes are listed below

Introducing M Profit

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?


That’s it for this week. See you in the next week’s edition
