Markets have remained choppy for the last 7-8 sessions after a superb run since Apr 2023. RSI may indicate reduced buying pressure but this might as well be a small pause before the next leg up if we can manage to hold on to the support at 18050. The immediate swing high at 18458 is the resistance to watch out for.
All benchmarks were flat to negative barring Smallcap 250 and Mid-Sml 400 which managed to stay in green with returns of 0.75% and 0.26% respectively. Smallcaps have been on a superb uptrend clocking 14% since 29 Mar 2023. Overall, all the benchmarks are off to a solid start in the current FY 24 and we hope this momentum continues.
REALTY & IT had a good outing in a volatile week clocking 1.28% and 0.98% respectively as majority of the sectors had a flat / negative outcomes. REALTY has gotten off to a rocking start to FY 24 returning a superb 18.42% followed by AUTO at 13%. Every sector we track, except for IT are net positive this FY 24.
Mi ST ATH had a solid outing this week returning 1.2% along with Mi 35 at 0.8%. Majority of WeekendInvesting strategies remained neutral or mirrored their respective benchmarks. Mi NNF 10, Mi 35 & Mi 25 have all done quite well returning more than 10% this FY 24. Hopefully this momentum continues.
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.
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 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.
