Weak over night cues amid continued worries over global recovery keep a lid on stocks
Asian markets ended mostly in red today, extending losses for a second day as strong dollar and lack of buying optimism hurt the sentiments. The regional stocks were off to a nervous start today as the DOW fell 149 points yesterday on weak housing data and the effect of the Chinese Yuan moves was seen wearing off. Fitch Ratings cut it's rating on BNP Paribas SA, heightening concern Europe's debt crisis is worsening. Dollar eventually bottomed out at a five day high and DOW futures also rallied but the by that it was a little too late for the Asian markets to catch up and gains were capped as such. Volumes were relatively lesser than normal, as traders preferred to move to the sidelines ahead of FOMC announcement and new home sales data later in the U.S.

Looks like the bulls have indeed run out of luck for now, though we reckon the overall sentiment remains positive. Given the subdued global backdrop, we expect a soft opening for Indian bourses. The NSE Nifty might start the day below 5300. Expect heightened volatility ahead of the F&O expiry on Thursday. The near-term trading band for Nifty is seen between 5200 and 5400.

Investors with short-term trading perspective can consider investing in the stock of JBF Industries. It is apparent from the charts of the stock that since December 2008 low of Rs 26 it has been on a long-term uptrend, forming higher perks and higher bottoms. However, following a short-term corrective decline from the stock's 52-week high of Rs 168 recorded on April 22, the stock found support at it's key medium-term support level of Rs 125 in late May this year. Taking support the stock bounced up subsequently and it appears to have resumed its long-term uptrend. On Tuesday, the stock managed to close above its 50-day moving average by gaining almost 2 per cent with above average volume. The daily relative strength index (RSI) is on the brink of entering in to the bullish zone from the neutral region whereas the weekly RSI has re-entered in to this zone. Daily moving average convergence-divergence indicator is entering into the positive territory, reinforcing the bullish momentum. Moreover, the medium-term up trendline is intact. We are bullish on the stock from a short-term horizon. We expect it to move up further until it hits our price targets of Rs 148 or Rs 155 in the upcoming trading sessions. Short-term traders can buy the stock with stop-loss at Rs 137.
