The Good Bad and Ugly weekly review :12 May 2023

5 min read

Markets have stayed robust since the beginning of FY 2024. After some heavy selling in Jan 2023, FIIs have turned net buyers since March 2023. In the current month (May 2023), FIIs have so far recorded 13278 crores indicating a growing demand & an upward trend. Despite some choppiness this week, Nifty has stayed quite strong clocking 1.36% gains. Strong RSI, FII buying and price action all point towards an upward trend which we all have been patiently waiting for since quite some time.

All benchmark indices recorded good gains hovering around the 1% to 1.5% mark with Nifty Jnr leading the pack at 1.7%. When you look at the FY 24 data, Smallcaps have managed to get off to a blazing start clocking 9.28% gains followed by Mid-small 400 (8.05%) & Nifty Jnr (7.95%). Nifty is at a drawdown of only 2.65% and we keep our fingers crossed like everyone for the coveted fresh ATH mark !

PSU Banks witnessed some profit booking losing 4.2% while PVT BANKS saw a contrasting performance clocking (+3.38%). AUTOs led the pack with a superlative 4.23% gains this week thus clinching the top spot on the monthly table as well returning 8%. In FY 24, REALTY holds pole position with a massive 16.9% followed by AUTOs at 13.6%. IT index is still reeling in at -2%.

Mi NNF 10 did well this week clocking 2.26% along with Mi 50 @ 1.5% gains while a few other smallcases had a flattish outcome. Mi NNF 10, Mi 20 & Mi 35 have all taken superb starts this FY 24 and we hope this continues heading forward.

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.

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.
