The Slack Discussions

The Slack group at Capital Mind Premium has been extremely active and if you haven’t been there, pop us a note by replying to this email. (If you’re a trial member this probably sound like Greek to you; it will be available when you sign up!)

Awesome discussions again!

A brief summary of some of the interesting things discussed there in the last few days:

The MA 20 indicators

Capital Mind has designed proprietary indicators – the MA20 and MA5 – which measure breadth within an index. When these indexes cross back from outside to within the +30 to -30 zone, there’s a trade, and we’ve made serious returns in trading that the last few months.

The MA20 is the Net Nifty stocks above their 20 day moving averages (Number of stocks above minus number of stocks below). The MA5 just uses the 5 day MA instead.

Here’s where we are right now. Nowhere, really:

MA5 MA20

Random Markets, Wide Tails and Normal distributions

We had an interesting discussion on how market returns are distributed. Here’s a summary:

• Vashistha brought forward the proposal that markets are random (not that he believes it) from the book A Random Walk Down Wall Street

• The theory is that markets are random and therefore no edge is to be gained by trading versus just following the index

• But there’s a lot of research that debunks this, plus the obvious people like Soros and Buffett

• Average Sensex returns (daily) follow the bell curve


But weekly returns are skewed to one side of the mean:


The P/E distribution has no “normal” distribution:


And the monthly distribution too is not very “normal” with fat tails.

Long legged Candles tell a story

Candle for August is misleading, since we are only halfway through the candle so far,

As long as any dip to 8330 or 8280 is bought and IF we close higher on the monthly, all dips will be bought:

Analysis of Atul Auto Limited:

Question of the Day

Q: Will the USD start getting more expensive or cheaper once the FED starts raising rates? The Chinese have devalued the Yuan, so as a counter move the USD must also devalue to nullify the effect of the yuan depreciation?

A: Doubtful. The dollar should strengthen in the long term, but it will have nearly no impact when they do raise, other than a few days of anticipation.
