How To Avoid Mistakes When Investing In Shares

The promise of making a lot of money has been heard by many,
and many have found out that it just is not as easy as they had
heard. They lost money - sometimes a lot of it. They then turned
away from the stock market and ended up totally disillusioned
about it. The truth is, they may have been somewhat confused
about it in the first place. They may have thought it would
come to them just like it did to others - without knowing the
why's or the how's. Here are some strategies that you can use
in order to help you to avoid the common mistakes that others
have made.

Get A Realistic View

By looking at the market with your eyes open, you can come to
understand not only the profit possibilities, but also the
possibility of losses. The truth is that the higher the
possible gain there is, that it is always associated with the
increased likelihood of loss. The safer investments always
bring a lower level of profit, and the safest investments have
attached to them the lowest levels of profit.

Understand The Market

One of the greatest benefits that you can have to help you
avoid a lot of potential pitfalls in your investments is to
understand the principles of investing. In other words, read
all you can about the process, how to judge a good stock, etc.
The more you know about it yourself, the wiser you will be able
to invest your funds - and hopefully see a profit. You will also
be able to develop a worthwhile investment strategy - both for
the short term and for the long term.


It is smart investing to place your available investment funds
into a minimum of 6 different kinds of shares. Some suggest
that you go as many as 20 in order to diversify safely. Spread
your investments into different kinds of stock (sectors) that
are not related. This way if one type of market does not do
well, then the other ones should. This enables you to still
make money from some of your investment.

It is usually a good idea to diversify into more than just the
stock market - at least until you really understand what you
are doing. The smart investor will take a portion of their
investment money and put a percentage of it into secure
investments like trust funds which are solid investments, and
possibly also bonds, which are the most secure, but do provide
less interest.

Seek Counsel From Professionals

Unless you have money to just throw away, it would be a real
good idea to seek help from someone who understands the market
better than you do. There are professionals out there,
financial advisors, brokers, etc., that are more than willing
to help you build a solid portfolio for your investments. Their
expertise can spare you a lot of unnecessary loss, and get you
on to the right track to some solid profit.

Make Your Investments For The Long Term

While there is different thinking about the markets and how to
invest, the general idea is to make your investments for the
long term. Experienced stock market experts tend not to watch
the market everyday, but only check on it once a month and many
of them only quarterly. Watching it everyday leads to a lot of
anxiety - since the market normally fluctuates a lot from day
to day. Overall, though, it generally moves upward.

Know Exactly What a Stock Market Formula Does, And Profit!

'Know Exactly What a Stock Market Formula Does, And Profit!'
by Sir Jon Weaver

What exactly does a stock market formula do? Stock traders
have been using and developing formulas since the birth of
the stock market. A summary of a formula's usefulness
includes two main functions that it fulfills.

First, over a full stock market cycle, it will improve your
investment profits without the application of any thought
whatever on your part. As is well known, there are many
investors who do not believe that the market will ever go
through a full cycle again -- that the direction of the
market is in a permanently upward movement, except for
temporary, minor dips. It might be worthwhile to point out,
without seeming to be too pessimistic, that there are some
good arguments against an indefinite continuation of bull

The second purpose of a formula -- apart from the question
of profiting from complete market cycles -- is to provide a
means of profiting from more minor fluctuations. It is
undeniable that the market will continue to fluctuate, and a
formula allows the investor to benefit from these
fluctuations by specifying conservative investment policies
when the market is relatively high, and more aggressive
policies when it is relatively low.

Since formulas ordinarily appear rather complicated, can the
small investor profitably use them? The answer is definitely

Some formulas are complicated, it is true, and you will
undoubtedly find some that are so complex as to be
unsuitable for most investors. But most formulas do not fall
into this category. The most widely used formulas today, in
fact, are based on extremely simple principles and can be
used by anyone with a rough knowledge of grade-school
arithmetic. Special measures to adapt formulas to the needs
of small investors will need to be investigated, but it is
worth noting that small investors are just as likely to want
to improve their profit performance in the market as are
larger investors, and there is no particular disadvantage in
having a small portfolio when you use a formula.

All investors -- large, small and medium-size -- are in the
same basic quandary. They would like to be sure of what is
going to happen to their capital, and so are inclined to
appreciate the features of fixed-income investments such as
savings accounts, bonds and commercial paper.

In such investments, their capital is guaranteed, and
(except in the case of savings accounts) so is their
interest. On the other hand, there are few opportunities for
appreciable profits in these areas, and no protection
against a decline in the value of the dollar. Consequently,
they are attracted by the characteristics of common stocks,
where neither their capital nor their return is guaranteed,
but which offer substantial opportunities for profits
through capital gain.

How to resolve the dilemma? It is obvious that the great
difficulty with the stock market is its uncertainty. One
workable suggestion of reducing the damage this uncertainty
can do has been often made: don't buy common stocks at all.
Most investors tend to regard this idea as, although
practical, rather extreme, and are reluctant to abandon the
possibilities of profit that exist in common stocks.

The formula idea is simply a form of protection against
uncertainty. Formulas are designed to allow the investor to
profit from the advantages of owning common stocks, while
providing a measure of protection against their handicaps;
to give some of the stability offered by fixed income
investments, while not condemning the investor to a low
return on their money. The whole point of formulas is to
make the best of both these worlds.

Stock Market Basics

Stock markets represent and portray the commercial and
economical strength of a country. The economy of a country
relies on the stock market to a great extent, since they trade
in the stocks of major companies. These markets are the source
of capitalism in the United States. They play an important role
by raising funds for companies. Being a part of a stock exchange
may seem complex to many, but you can be a part of any popular
stock exchange, either with the help of a brokerage account
that can be opened online, or by interacting directly with the

A stock market is a place where people who want to earn money
through investment, and companies who can provide those
investment opportunities, come together. The trading and
investing of stocks takes place in this market. Companies need
funds and in order to raise funds, they issue stocks in the
form of shares in which you invest, to earn money. If the
company earns profit, then you as a stockholder of that company
will also get a share in that profit.

You can gain a lot on the selling floor of a stock market. It
is necessary, however, for you to understand the basics of a
stock market, what its roles are, and how it works. For this, a
proper study of all the possible market moves is essential. This
needs constant appraisal, as the market moves very fast, and
there are many ups and downs involved.

Stock markets are fraught with risk. Therefore, be it trading
or investing, you need to proceed with caution. It is advisable
to analyze a company's profits and cash flow, the services it
offers and the profit distribution pattern it follows, before
investing in its stocks. If you are confident that the shares
are commercially viable, you can go ahead and make an
Beside the profit incurred through the sale and purchase of
stocks, you can also get the benefit of dividends that
profitable companies offer. As an investor, you ought to know
that blue chip stocks, income stocks, defensive stocks and
growth stocks are several groups under which the future shares
of companies are divided.

Big companies that pay dividends without fail, and have a
record of growth in profit, have their shares referred to as
blue chips. You can also invest in income stocks because the
companies that issue these stocks pay high dividends, and have
a stable earning in the market. Growth stocks grow very fast,
but may fetch you nil or minimal dividends. In order to
minimize your risk you can invest in defensive stocks as their
value remains constant even if the market falls.

Companies can also issue their shares abroad with the help of
banks. If you are planning on investing in stocks then try to
invest in companies that offer dividends along with discounts.
You can do the purchasing through the brokerage, or dividends,
or a direct investment plan. Since a lot of people buy shares
and stocks there is a cycle of supply and demand. Depending on
this cycle, various fluctuations take place in the stock
market. So, try to immunize yourself from these fluctuations by
investing wisely.

The stock market not only provides you, as a trader or
investor, an opportunity to purchase or sell shares or stocks,
but also plays an important role in maintaining the cash flow
in the economy of a country. If you are interested in making
money in stocks, then it is recommended you learn the basics of
stock markets before leaping in.

The ABCs of the Stock Market

The ABCs of the Stock Market

A recent study indicates that Americans are saving less these
days than they were 10 years ago, except for entrepreneurs and
corporate executive and in one particular segment - young
middle-managers who are about six to 10 years into their
careers and only beginning to make headway into the higher
echelons of their particular industry.

Are you one of these people? If you are, then chances are that
you are currently in the process of planning or expanding your
base of investments. You have probably given real estate a good
look and determined that, although attractive, it is more ideal
for a full-time real estate investor because it demands a lot
of effort and time. You also probably have a tidy little sum
invested in various banking tools like savings and time
deposits as well as common trust bonds and government
securities. That's all well and good and your money is safe
right there. But now you want to shoot for the moon, mainly by
investing in the kind of company and industry that you may be
familiar with. You are eager to try the stock market.

Here are a few basics about the stock market business.

The stock market is mainly a place where you sell or trade a
company's stock. These stocks are small shares in the company
which it sells to the public in order to raise capital to
finance its other ventures. Of course, you already know that
capital is the money that a company spends for producing,
improving, expanding, distributing and promoting its products
and services. If you buy a company's stocks, you are one of its

The use of the term stock market also applies in reference to
all the stocks that are available for trading (as well as other
securities) as in the statement "the stock market performed well

You can also trade bonds on the stock market. Bonds are a
business IOU that indicate that the bond issuer holds the bond
holder a debt. Bonds are traded directly between two parties
over the counter.

You may opt to trade commodities on the stock market. The term
commodities refers to agricultural products (coffee, sugar,
wheat, maize, barley, cocoa, milk products) and other raw
materials (pork bellies, oil, metals). For example, if you feel
that the price of coffee will increase next month, you buy the
coffee commodity now and reap the benefits of the price
increase next month when you sell.

Stock Market Astrology XIV

Stock Market Astrology Part XIV

( Copyright G Kumar - 16/12/2003)

Fibonacci Numbers

The Italian mathematician Leonardo de Pisa Fibonacci was a maths wizard. He discovered that there exits a periodic pattern in numbers. His numbers are known as the Fibonacci numbers. The last number is the sum of the earlier 2 digits. If you take a ratio ( known as the Golden Ratio, it will be 1.618 ( this is known as Phi )) . In Nature, in Geometry, in architecture and everywhere you can see the Fibonacci numbers in motion ! This explains why Plato defined Deity as the Great Geometer ! He is playing with Time, He is playing with Space, He is playing with Geometry !

These are the numbers knowns as Fibonacci numbers

0,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,377,610,987,1597,2584,4181,6765,10946,17711,28657,46368,75025,121393,196418 ........

Fibonacci numbers can be used in Stock Market Astrology along with Numerology.

Now that the Sensex is languishing at 5390 levels, we have to exercise more caution and prudence. We cannot afford to forget the basic principles of Contrarian investing - " Buy when everybody is selling and sell when everybody is buying."

There are many who think that the market has reached an overbought zone. The market has only peaked by 70%. Still there is still more distance to be traversed. Secondary and tertiary reactions can happen. There will always be sideways movements also ( Some scrips coming down when the Sensex goes up ). All economic factors are favourable ( thanks to Jupiter in the lunar second ). You can book profit but be aware that that the market has not reached the Zenith !

Profit booking is always good. Only when you book profit can you get actual cash in your hands. Paper profits are no good. It can only satisfy our ego. Yesterday I booked profit in CMC. I had bought the script at 465 and I sold it at 576, a profit of 111 points ! After selling it went up to 582! Let it go up. Let the man who bought it get some profit ! I already got my profit. That is enough. The money thus released can be recycled. Bharti Tele, BSES, Maruti, PNB, OBC, Andhra Bank, ONGC all seems to be bear hammered and can still go up.

Patience - the main criterion for Success

The main quality needed in the stock market is patience. Patience is the companion of wisdom and not only can patience pay rich dividends in the spiritual sphere but also in the material sphere !

Patience is the strength of the weak
Also the ornament of the strong !
( Kshama Balam Ashakthanam
Shakthanam Bhooshanam Kshama )
Research - A must for success

Another quality which is needed in the stock market is research. " The not so well researched lose money " says W D Gann. Research was identified by Adam Smith, the father of Economics, as the main element needed for success. Look at the way the well researched FII s are minting money !

In order to help the public, we have given a Companies Database on our site. The Intrinsic Market Value of each scrip is highlighted. You can access this web page at We have given the Intrinsic Market Value of more than 800 blue chip companies. The Intrinsic Market Value is the base of investing. It indicates the potential worth of a scrip and can be a major aid in an investment decision.

So now the time has come for some profit booking. Do not bother if the scrip which you sell goes up. Remember the adage of the market ' The smartness of the operator lies in booking loss and not in booking profit". Profit booking is the main objective of the stock market. During my infancy in the stock market, many booms passed me by and I did not book profit at the proper time. Later on, I learnt via the method of trial and error, the bad effects of not booking profit at the proper time. If we dont book profit, booms will pass us by and we will be without any actual profit !

Astro Technology & Yoga Technology.

Can Astro Technology bring home the bacon ( in the stock market )? Yes, it can ! Astro Technology is only subservient to Yoga Technology, which is Absolute Knowledge or Knowledge of the Absolute !

Jupiter in Leo, in the lunar second has brought about this boom. India's forex reserves have crossed $ 97 billion and will cross the 100 billion mark. India's software, auto, bank, steel and auto components sectors have performed admirably. The GNP growth is 7.4 percent. Look at auto scrips, Telco, M& M, Maruti ! Look at the auto components scrip Bharat Forge & Ucal. Look at Tisco and Jisco. Look at ICICI Bank and SBI. Look at tech scrips Infy, Hughes, Wipro & Satyam ! Jupiter rules banks and Rahu rules IT. These 2 sectors are leading the rally, thanks to Jove and the North Node !

Philosophical Piece

It was the Rishies who first computed Time and they declared that 15 degrees = 1 hour and that a day is made up of 24 Horas or hours. ( Ardha Rasi Bhaveth Hora Chathurvimshathi Smrithah ). The English word hour is derived from the Sanskrit word Hora. In other words, a day is 24*60*60 or 86400 seconds. 4 seconds is called a Pranakala or an Asu. A day is made up of 86400 seconds or 21600 Asus. Man's exhalation and inhalation span is 4 seconds, the span of an Asu. Man's exhalation and inhalation is in the form " Soham" ( I am He ). In other words, during a day, man unconsciously affirms his identity with the Creator, 21600 times a day !

Stock Market Astrology Part XIII

( Copyright G Kumar - 23/11/2003 )
It is said that the legendary stock market and commodities trader, W D Gann made 50 million dollars from the stock market. He used astro charts for trading. How famous is his wheat chart ! One of his close friends wrote "It is very difficult for me to remember all the predictions and operations of Mr. Gann which may be classed as phenomenal, but the following are a few: In 1908 when Union Pacific was 168-1/8, he told me that it would not touch 169 before it had a good break. We sold it short all the way down to 152-5/8, covering on the weak spots and putting it out again on the rallies, securing twenty-three points profit out of an eighteen point wave."

W D Gann wrote in his " Tunnel Through the Air " - "It is so simple and easy to solve problems and get correct answers and results with figures that it seems strange so few people rely on them to forecast the future of business, stocks & commodity markets. The basic principles are easy to learn & understand. No matter whether you use geometry, trigonometry, or calculus, you use the simple rules of arithmetic. You do only two things: You increase or decrease."
The Theory of Planetary Harmonics

In my 18 years as an investor, I have found that some Industry scrips are favourable while others are not. Tech stocks like Infosys & Wipro always give me good returns. Bank shares also give me capital appreciation. On the other hand, I could not book profit in scrips in the Steel Industry and Auto. On checking my horoscope I found that Rahu, the North Node ( Tech stocks ) and Jupiter ( bank stocks ) are favourable in my chart while Saturn ( steel ) & Venus ( auto ) were afflicted.
The Concept of Intrinsic Market Value
Intrinsic Market Value is the true value of a share and can be obtained by multiplying the EPS ( earnings per share ) with the Industrial P/E ( Price per earnings ratio - Market Price/ EPS ). IMV is the basis of Fundamental Analysis and it reflects the Company's true fundamentals. ( Our software computes the IMV of all shares as well as eps, p/e, average market price etc and warns you when the market is in an overbought condition ).
Definition of Support & Resistance Levels
Support and Resistance levels are popular terms, popular to both the trader and the investor. Support Level indicates a readiness to absorb all selling & Resistance Level means readiness to absorb all buying. Enough buying pressure to halt a downtrend in prices for an appreciable period is Support and Resistance means the exact reverse of support - selling significant in volume to satisfy and even overwhelm all bids which would stop prices from going higher for a period of time.
Support / Resistance
Support means a concentration of demand while Resistance means a concentration of suppy. When sufficient demand for a stock appears to halt a downtrend , it is called Support. This demand has the ability to even reverse the downtrend. Conversely, Resistance is a price level at which enough supply of stock can stop and even force a reversal of its uptrend. There is always a certain amount of demand/supply at any given price level and it is one which is dominant at that particular moment which will determine the direction of the future trend.
Volume in any particular stock veers towards concentration at several price levels, usually converting into a reversal point in the stock's trend. The Law of Periodicity states that such reversals tend to repeat themselves ( History repeats itself ). It has been observed that these price reversal points switch from Resistance to Support and vice versa. An earlier top becomes a bottom & vice versa according to changing primary trends.
Validity of Levels - Volume, Distance, Time
Volume - Volume is an important and a fundamental criteria in estimating the validity of both levels. The quantum of volume generated would help in deciding the validty of a level.
Distance - Distance ( the extent of the subsequent advance or decline ) is very important and greater the distance, greater the resistance.
Time - The resistance level of a stock two years back is more effective than one which is 4/5 years old.
The Vedic description of Astrology as a Lamp in Darkness corresponds to the Jungian prescription of Astrology as a diagnostic tool.
The importance of the Birth Constellation
The helplessness of man is in every step he takes. One may be out of job for petty reasons, one may see one's business falling due to no fault of one's own, one sees enemies on the rise even when one succeeds. It is all Fate and human helplessness ! The Heavenly Light that is Astrology reveals that vicissitudes are part of Life and fortunes always fluctuate in Life. To understand these vicissitudes, Astrology can of immense help. Particularly when we deal with the stock market, which is unpredictable & fluctuating, cyclical & volatile ! It is not a stock market, it is a shock market !
According to Vedic Astrology, the most important star is the birth constellation and it rules the whole of our destiny.
Intuition & experience confirm the concords of Science and Philosophy. Intuition and experience has it that some stars are benevolent for us and others not. Here we give below the stars which are favourable and which are not.
No Name Nature Effect

1 Janma Natal ( Adverse Star ) Unfavourable
2 Sampat Wealth ( Benevolent Star ) Favourable
3 Vipat Crisis ( Dangerous Star ) Unfavourable
4 Kshema Prosperity ( Boom Star ) Favourable
5 Pratyak Obstacle ( Hindrance Star ) Unfavourable
6 Sadhana Smooth ( Smooth Star ) Favourable
7 Naidhana Death ( Death Star ) Unfavourable
8 Mitra Friend ( Friendly Star ) Favourable
9 Paramitra Bosom Friend ( Patron Star ) Favourable

So when we go for trading, it is better to check out whether the day is favourable or not for us. The 3rd Star and the 7th star are to be avoided at all costs. In order to test this theory, I did trade on the forbidden days and saw that I lost in speculation ! Our Zodiac Stock Market Astrology software warns you about the unfavourable days according to your Natal Chart, so that you can take educated decisions which will bring home the bacon. We find that not only loss in speculation but many adversities befall us during the periods of the 3rd and 7th Star.
If we observe the vicissitudes which are happening in our lives, we can see that many auspicious things happen on the days ruled by the 2nd, the 4th, 6th, 8th and 9th stars. Conversely, many inauspicious things happen on the days ruled by the 3rd, 7th, 1st and 5th stars. The former Prime Minister of India, Nehru, died on the day of the 7th Star or the Death Star. Vicissitudes are part of life, we have to live with them, but then here you have a Celestial Guide ( Astrology ) which prepares you to absorb the best & face the worst ! Result- you are freed from both positive and negative stress !
An ounce of luck is worth tons of talent. In order to enhance luck, it is better to wear the Birthstone or rather the gem of the planet which is positive in your horoscope. As per the Positive Method in Gemology, the trinal lords play an important role in one's luck. The Ninth lord is the Lord Of Fortune, the Fifth is Ninth from the Ninth and the Ascendant Lord rules Self. So it is better to wear the gem of the most positive planet in your horoscope so that you will be blessed by this positive planet.

Scientific Research has it that the seven primary colors of the spectrum and the two secondary colors correspond to the nine revolving heavens.(VIBGYOR & infra-red and ultra-violet ).

The nine colors are understood to be the cosmic matrix and the very essence of the nine planets and it is through these colors that the planets radiate their energy and influence. When the visible colored lights are measured infra-red exhibits the longest wave length and ultra-violet the shortest. The wavelength of colored light emanating from the planets are found to match those radiating from each planet's corresponding gemstone(s).Researches show that the wavelength of light emanating from the Sun is identical to the wavelength of light emanating from Ruby - Red.

( If you want to know about the gem to be worn pls email giving your date, time and place of birth ). We will send you the Gem Prescription Report straightaway

Stock Market Astrology Part XII

( Copyright G Kumar - 30/10/2003 )

The Nodal Cycle

The North Node of the Moon, or rather the Ascending Node of Luna, takes 18.6 years to make a circuit of the Zodiac. This is known as the sidereal period of the North Node. This 18 year business cycle is linked to economic cycles. The North Node in Taurus was responsible for the bear phase in the US, with the Dow falling from a high of 11300 to 9600 levels. Rise in the U S Stock Market was reported when the North Node transited Leo. As the North Node moves towards Aquarius in retrograde motion, we can see furthur bearishness in the US stock markets and the US indices will hit their Nadir in 2008 ! The Dow can fall to unjustifiably low levels !

In India's horoscope, the NN is now in Taurus, in the 10th. Rahu in the 10th is considered good and business normally gets a boost ( Veshoorane cha Balavanuragadhipa ). As the 10th rules business, the significations of the NN get a boost. The significations of NN are IT primarily. No wonder the software sector is doing well, posting a healthy 34% growth, with software scrips like IFlex, CMC, Satyam, Infosys, Wipro, HCL Infosys etc registering phenomenal gains ! They can appreciate furthur !

The Law of Cyclicality & Recurrence

There is a periodical recurrence of the rise and fall in stocks. It is clear that a natural law is at work, which governs stock movements. The manifestation of this Law of Peridiocity can be seen in the stocks which go on an uptrend & vice versa. For example, while SBI was advancing steadily, we found that IOC was steadily declining. The Law of Cyclicality was at work, sending a particular stock on the upward trend, while others were trending downward.

The Contrarian nature of the Stock Market

We find that the market moves against fundamentals ! When a Company announces good results, its stocks come down. Conversely when bad results are announced, vice versa happens. This contrarian nature of the Market has puzzled many. When a Company announces good results, the big players bear hammer the scrip to low levels. They themselves enter the scrip at low levels ! Conversely, they buy the scrips ( whose results are bad ) and increase the price of the scrip. At high levels they themselves offload the scrip !

Indian Economy to grow 6.9 %

The Investment Information and Credit Rating Agency (ICRA) said in its report that " With excellent monsoon and a likely new record agricultural output, fiscal 03-04 appears set to clock growth well in excess of 6.5%. Perhaps approaching 6.9%, the increase contributed by a sharp increase in agriculture GDP by as much as 9%." Expecting a record kharif crop at 110 million tonnes along with better oilseeds, sugarcane and cotton output, ICRA also said that the country is poised to post a record rabi harvest.

Corporate Earnings growth to drive Equity Market

The corporate earnings, expressed in growing profits, instead of re-rating of markets, would drive the activity on bourses and auto stocks would attract the maximum investor's interest, according DSP-Merryll Lynch
Automobile was the most preferred sector for investment amond the fund managers while the fast moving consumer goods stocks ( FMCG) were the least preferred. IT was the second preferred sector.

Banking was the only other sector where the fund managers held a clear positive outlook and continued to be bullish on commodities such as cement and petrochemicals. Commercial vehicles companies were expected to post 69 % year-on-year growth in earnings. Despite the bull run in stocks seen till date, the market was still perceived as undervalued. Close to 70 % of the fund managers believe that the markets are undervalued by 10-15 %.

Bajaj Auto has reported a 46.51% rise in net profit to 193.37 crores. ACC's net has gone up 444% to 27.88 crores. Satyam Computers' net has gone up by 24% to 147.59 crores. Tata Power's net has gone up by 26% to 170.81 crores. Grasim's net has gone up 58% to 202 crores. Andhra Bank's net has gone up more than 100%. Indian Overseas Bank' net is up 76% at 154 crores. Syndicate Bank reported a 143 crore net profit. Union Bank's net is up 65% at 170 crores

The Primary Market

You can apply for the new issues - like bank shares - in the primary market. UCO Bank listed at 20, even though the offer price was 10 + 2. When the primary trend is bullish, you can get easy profit. Other Bank issues also fared well. We suggest you should only apply when the primary trend is bullish. You may get allotment only after 1 month. So when you apply be sure that the market will be bullish when you get the allotment.

When get the allotment, sell immediately. Dont be greedy and hold out in the expectation of furthur gains. When you sell, your money is freed for recycling in other issues. That way, you can get good appreciation for your capital.

Horary Charts can be used for Trading

Yesterday when I went for trading, the checked the horary chart. Sagittarius was rising, with Moon and Gulika ( a satellite of Saturn) in the Ascendant, aspected powerfully by Jupiter. From 1000 to 1200 , it was Sagittarius which rose, from 12 to 2 Capricorn and from 2 to 03.30 PM Aquarius. As expected Sag was positive and the market opened with +30 points. At 1200 it began to recede ( Capricorn negative ) and the Sensex was showing minus. After 2 00 PM it went up ( Aquarius positive, with Jup in the 7th aspecting Aquarius ) and closed at 4742 !

I used this chart for trading and entered Bharti Tele at 83 and Telco at 362. I short sold HCL Info at 337 and covered it up later at 333. Bharti I sold for 86 and Telco ( it was the day when Telco announced a 251% hike in net profit ) for 367 at 0300 PM !

Today I knew that with Sag rising at 09.55 Am, the market can only be positive. I entered OBC at 233 and exited at 242. I entered PNB at 190 and exited at 196. I entered Bharti Tele at 86 and exited at 89. A gain of 18 points in just 3 hours !
Just shows how friendly a diagnostic tool Astrology can be when we deal with the volatile stock market !

Stock Market Astrology XI

Stock Market Astrology Part IX ( SMA & Dow Jones Theory )

( Copyright - G Kumar 21/10/2003 )

We have seen that the primary trend is always interrupted by secondary trends and a bust can happen in a primary booming market. Most deceptive is the secondary reaction ! Investors shiver when such a secondary reaction happens. Many panic and sell off their entire holdings. It is difficult to identify this secondary trend because one does not know whether it is the beginning of a primary bear market or a secondary reaction. Intuition alone can identify secondary trends. The foremost amongst the intuitive sciences, Astrology, here comes to our rescue.

The investor population in India did panic when the Sensex slid from 4469 to 4105. Normally a secondary reaction lasts from 3 weeks to 3 months. The market recovered only after 3 weeks. Many panicked and thought that this signalled a bear phase. It was disproved only after 3 weeks when the market surpassed 4469 !

We have declared that Intuition alone can determine trends. Amongst the Scientia Intuitiva, the foremost science Astrology can definitely determine primary, secondary and tertiary trends. That Jupiter's transit of the second can fuel an economic boom was known to the sages. " Nana Dukham Vitha Samriddhi " - thus runs an aphorism, meaning that Jupiter's transit of the second can trigger a stock market boom, if the stock market can indeed be taken as a barometer of the economy !

We will define secondary reactions which are a bull decline in a Bull Phase and a bear rally in a Bear Phase.

Secondary Reactions

Nelson remarks that " A secondary reaction is considered to be an important decline in a bull market or advance in a bear market usually lasting from 3 weeks to 3 months during which intervals the price movement generally retraces from 33 percent to 66 percent of the primary price change since the termination of the last preceding secondary reaction. The reactions are frequently erroneously assumed to represent a change of primary trend, because obviously the first stage of the bull market must always coincide with a movement which might have proved to have been nearly a secondary reaction in a bear market, the contrary being proved after the peak has been attained in a bull market. " ( The ABC of Stock Speculation ).

While theoretically it is easy to talk about primary trends and secondary reactions, practically it is difficult for an invester who has invested all his savings in an unpredictable market. The investor's normal reaction to a decline is to panic. Suppose you buy Reliance for 460. After 2 days Reliance becomes 440 ! What will you do ? You panic thinking that a bear phase has started and will sell the scrip at a loss. Then later, say after 3 weeks Reliance starts its climb and becomes 570 ! So the investor needs guidance from technical and fundamental experts. But can Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis guide him ? If FA and TA could guide millions, we wont have so many losers ! This indicates the scope for another analyst - The Stock Market Astrology expert - who alone can determine trends based on the intuitive sciences !

Now a secondary reaction is taking place and the Sensex had slid down to 4700 levels. 4930 meant an overbought situtation and a correction had to occur. You can either hold on to your portfolio ( as this is merely a secondary reaction in a primary upward market ) or sell off and enter when the Sensex is 300/400 points down. There is no need to panic as this reaction is secondary and not primary.

Even though we are confronted with a Bull Market now, we will deal with a Bear Market which will come after some time as the Market is cyclical.

The Primary Bear Market

According to Nelson " A primary bear market is a long downward movement interrupted by important rallies. It is caused by various economic ills and does not terminate until the stock prices have thoroughly discounted the worst that is apt to occur. " ( The ABC of Stock Speculation ).

When we take a graph and when we find falling resistance ( high ) and support ( low ) levels, we can deduce the primary trend as a Bear Phase. When we see secondary rallies known as bear rallies, we can identify the secondary trend as rallies in the primary bear market .Tertiary trends are unimportant.

Nelson categorically states that " a primary downward market is characterised by a) extinguishment of all hopes upon which the stocks were purchased at inflated prices b) selling due to decreased business and earnings c) distress selling of sound securities, ragardless of their value, by those who must find a cash market for at least a portion of their assets."

When the Sensex slid from 6151 in 2001 to 2900 at the beginning of this year, it signalled a Bear Phase. There were many rallies but they were all secondary rallies in a primary falling market. Stock markets are cyclical and he who knows about the cyclical nature of the stock market grieves no more !

Tertiary Trends - Daily Fluctuations

Nelson averrs that " the third and usually unimportant, movement is the daily fluctuation. Nevertheless, the day to day pattern must be studied because they nearly always develop into a pattern easily recognised and having a forecasting value." ( The ABC of Stock Speculation )

On Sept 10, the Sensex was 4469. It began its downward descent and if we had plotted the graph for 3 / 4 days we could have come to know that it was a secondary reaction.

Relation of Volume to Price Movements

Says Nelson " the market, which is in an overbought state, becomes dull on rallies and develops activity ( read as volume ) on declines. Conversely, when the market is in an oversold condition, the tendency is to become dull on declines and active on rallies. Bull markets terminate in a period of excessive activity and begin with comparitively light transactions. " ( The ABC of Stock Speculation )

When the Sensex found support at 4105 and began its ascent, there were more volumes as many could buy scrips at reasonable prices. More activity was reported on NSE and BSE ( turnover almost $ 1 billion ).


"Manipulation is possible in the daily movements and secondary reactions are subject to such an influence to a more limited degree, but the primary trend can never be manipulated". ( The ABC of Stock Speculation ).

The primary trend is caused by a variety of economic factors and is not manipulated although there were some manipulations in the tertiary and secondary movements. ( SEBI cracked down on Samir Arora and Taib Bank )

Yesterday ( 20/10/2003 ) the market lost almost 78 points. We have to understand that they are mere secondary corrections in a primary bull market. Patience alone can win the game for us ! He who exhibits one man's intelligence and six men's patience alone can win !

Stock Market Astrology VIII

Stock Market Astrology Part VIII - ( SMA & Dow Jones Theory )

( Copyright - G Kumar 20/10/2003 )

Technical Analysis alone cannot identify the initial primary trend and thinks that the start of the Primary Bull Market is a bear rally. Conversely the start of a Primary Bear Market is seen erroneously as a bull decline. Stock Market Astrology sees these initial points in an intuitive flash ! It is clear that Predictive Astrology can supplement Technical and Fundamental Analysis !

We do not claim that all predictions of Stock Market Astrology will be cent percent accurate. If it was so then astrologers would own half the world. We can say that Probability for accuracy is 70% ! While Mundane Astrology gives us the political map, Financial Astrology gives the economic picture of the nation. Technical and Fundamental Analyses are good diagnostic tools in the stock market. But they cannot attain perfection without Predictive Astrology, which itself is another diagnostic tool !

Ever since our first article was written two months ago, the Sensex has gone over by 1000 points. Our subscribers have become wealthier and more knowledgeable. They are ready to take calculated risks and take advantage of the stock market boom. ( I had been getting frequent phone calls from Bombay & Madras, congratulating me for identifying the initial trend as Bull Phase I and for the accuracy of my forecasts ). We successfully identified the crash from 4469 to 4105 as a secondary reaction or a bull decline and told our subscribers to stay invested while many panicked and sold off their entire holdings !

We will warn them when the market is in an overbought condition. That will be the time to get out of the market. Contrarian principles should be adhered to, if one wants stock market success ! ( " Sell when everybody is buying" )

Determination of Trends as per Dow Jones Theory

Let us analyse how Dow Jones determines trends.

"Successive rallies penetrating preceding high points with ensuing declines terminating above preceding low points offer a bullish indication. Conversely, failure of rallies to penetrate previous high points with ensuing declines carrying below former low points is bearish. Inferences so drawn are useful in appraising secondary reactions and are of major importance in forecasting the resumption, continuation or change of the primary trend. A rally or a decline is defined as one or more daily movements resulting in a net reversal of direction exceeding three percent of the prices of either average. Such movements have but little authority unless confirmed in direction by both averages, but the confirmation need not occur on the same day. " ( The ABC of Stock Speculation ).

What it means is that the Bear Phase is characterised by falling resistance and support levels & Bull Phase vice versa !

Theoretically nice, but all this is very difficult to implement.

Intuition alone can identify trends

Determination of trends is the major factor for stock market success. We find that there is confusion in applying the principles of Technical Analysis. A crash of the market may be seen as a bull decline and the start of a Primary Bull Market may appear as a bear rally. Again the duration of the Bull Phase or a Bear Phase is not known to Technical Analysis.

The British philosopher Schelling defined Intuition as " that faculty of the Absolute, which perceives the Absolute as the Absolute ". In other words, Intuition alone can see Reality. Aurobindo averred that " behind the phenomenal world is the Transcendent Reality which Intuition alone can see". It was Intuition alone which revealed the Ultimate Reality to Aurobindo, Ramana Maharshi & Sankara .

If Absolute Reality can be known by Intuition, why not stock market trends ?

Celestial causes for the rise of the Indian economy

Jupiter, the significator of finance, in India's lunar second, in the House of Wealth can only mean an economic boom. Rising GDP growth ( as per CMIE 7.4 % ), rising agricultural growth ( 4.3%), rising forex reserves ( $ 90 billion ) and rising exports. Steel exports have risen to 47%, software 34% and auto 34%. Steel boom will last for 2 more years, according to Seshagiri Rao, Director-Finance, Jindal Vijayanagar Steel. It is true that some negative factors, Saturn in the 12th ( rising imports ) and Mars in the 8th ( delaying of disinvestment ) are detrimental factors to the Indian economy. But Rahu trining Jupiter will give the economic impetus which the nation is hoping for !

Dow Jones Theory is not Infallible

It is not an infallible system of beating the market and its successful use requires serious study and the summing up of evidence must be impartial. The wish must never be allowed to father the thought

There are slight complaints that our articles are too informative or too intellectual. What we have done here is to acquaint ourselves with the Dow Jones Theory, which are the collective research findings of Charles Dow, Hamilton & Nelson and to incorporate Intuition, which alone can determine trends ! Right information is crucial to success. Adam Smith, the father of Economics remarked that " there is no substitute for information. The market is not a roulette wheel. Good ideas and good research are an absolute necessity in the market place ". We are one of the best researched dotcoms in the world. Stay invested and we will warn you about the dangers ahead !

Stock Market Astrology VII

Stock Market Astrology - Part VII - The Intellectual Aspect

( Copyright - G Kumar 18/10/2003 )

Stock Market movements are governed by mainly five factors - fundamental, technical, macroeconomic, political & planetary !

Nelson who wrote the 'ABC of Stock Speculation ' designated the research findings of Dow Jones as the Dow Jones Theory. Charles Dow was frank in stating that his Theory is not infallible and that the real method of forecasting the duration or extent of a primary trend was unknown to Technical Analysis !

Indentifying the Primary Trend is difficult. Even Secondary Reactions are deceptive. There is only one Science which can forecast this and it is Stock Market Astrology !

Fundamental Analysis concentrates on the Intrinsic Value of the Share, but Intrinsic Value has no practical value, as stock prices are either overpriced or underpriced. Technical Analysis can indicate whether the market is bearish or bullish, but cannot easily identify trends. The beginning of a Primary Bull Market may appear as a bear rally. Similarly the start of a Primary Bear Market may appear as a bull decline. There are unknown & hidden factors determining stock market movements like macroeconomic, political and planetary factors. Neither Nelson's book ' The ABC of Stock Speculation' nor Hamilton's " Stock Market Barometer" ( supposed to be a Bible for stock investors ) take these hidden factors into consideration. Stock Market Astrology alone takes into cognizance all the five fundamental factors and can identify primary trends and secondary reactions !

In our earlier articles, we have already given all the five factors responsible for the major bull run on the Indian bourses.

Correlation of Planetary Cycles & Economic Cycles

Jupiter Cycles & Indian Economy

When the Narasimha Rao Government initiated liberalisation in 1991, India's GDP growth was just 3 %. After that GDP grew at an average 6%. Jupiter was in Leo in 1991 and now Jupiter has completed one Jupiter Cycle of 12 years. He is starting another cycle and we will have better growth. His transit of Leo has also been a bullish factor for India ( He is in India's lunar second ). Rahu trined Jupiter then. Now also Rahu trines Jupiter ! Economic boom ( Vitha Samruddhi ) has always been predicted when Jupiter transits the 2nd. CMIE points out that this year GDP growth will be 7.4 %.
We had in our earlier articles identified the primary trend as bullish. There was a Secondary Reaction at 4469 on the 10th of September. The Sensex slid by 364 points and found support at 4105. Now the Sensex is rising and is now at 4930. A secondary reaction is expected at any moment now. The market can dip by about 400/500 points and we have already warned our subscribers about this danger. During the market dip you can either hold your portfolio or sell off at high levels and enter at low levels !

The Dow Jones Theory states that Markets move in three trends - primary, secondary & tertiary.

Primary Movement

The first, and the most important is the primary trend which is the broad trend ( which is upward or downward ) which is known as a bull or bear market extending over periods which may vary from less than a year to several years and is generally interrupted by secondary reactions.

Secondary Movement

Second and the most deceptive movement is the secondary reaction - an important decline in a bull market or a rally in a primary bear market and which usually lasts from three weeks to three months.

Tertiary Movement

The third movement is the daily fluctuation. This is the least important of all the three movements.
The Primary Bull Market

Averaging more than 2 years, a primary bull market is a broad upward movement, interrupted by secondary reactions Due to improved business conditions and increase in speculative activity stock prices advance because of demand created by both speculation and investment.

There three characteristics of a bull period are

1) Revival of business confidence due to optimism

2) The rise of stock prices to the known improvement in corporate earnings.

3) Speculation is rampant - a period when stocks rise on expectations & euphoria.

We have seen that there is an economic revival, corporate earnings have gone up and speculation is becoming the order of the day. We are nearing the end of Bull Phase I and from 5000 onwards we will have Bull Phase II. Bull Phase II can also be interrupted by secondary reactions.

The investor population is confused, they do not know whether it is the end of a Bull Phase and the beginning of a Bear Phase. I was talking to a friend and he is of the opinion that the market is overheated and may crash at any moment ! Things are not so. Zodiac Stock Market Astrology identifies this current phase ( Sensex at 4930 ) as the end of Bull Phase I and the beginning of Bull Phase II ! Stay invested !

Stock Market Astrology VI

Stock Market Astrology Part VI - Software & Consultancy

( written on 16/10/2003 )

Stock Market Astrology has been defined as a blend of Technical Analysis & Predictive Astrology with Fundamental Analysis lending support

Planetary Strength Hypothesis

The sixfold source of planetary strength ( Shadbala ) is used for prognostication. The strengths of planets are deduced from Shadbala.

Your speculative planetary potential can be judged by the following formula

Planetary Potential = Strength of North Node ( Rahu ) + Strength of Jupiter divided by 2

The Houses, 5, 9 and 11 are very important. If the lords of these houses are powerful, then success in speculation is guaranteed. The formula can be elaborated thus

Speculative Potential = Strengths of ( 9th lord, 11th lord, 5th lord, Rahu, Jupiter ) divided by 5.

The Position of Ketu, the South Node

Ketu in the 11th can give monetary windfall through lottery, stock exchange and jackpot. People with Ketu in the 11th should study the Dow Jones Theory and the Wave Theory. Using Technicals and Astrology, they can be successes in the highly volatile stock market. ( I entered the share market in 1987 as my Ketu was in the 11th Bhava. Immediately I met with success. I sold Reliance shares for profit. ) My experience is that Astrology can be positive when it comes to stock market investment.

Using Sarvashtavarga

Just look at the points or bindus gained by the 5th, 9th and 11th houses. If you get good bindus in Sarvashtavarga, you can take the plunge in the share market.

Using Transit

If Jupiter and Rahu are favourable, you can take the plunge.

Using Dasa System

If you are having a favourable Dasa or period of directional influence, you can take the plunge.

Using the Sidereal System for speculation

Avoid Chandrashtama days. Avoid 3, 5, 7 stars, counted from your birth star. Know that the 2nd star is Sampath ( wealth), the 4th Kshema ( abundance ), and the 8th and 9th are Mitra ( friend ) and Para Mitra ( bosom friend ) respectively. Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday are to be avoided in classical astrology. Saturday and Sunday are holidays for the bourses. . If you are investing for long term, it is better to avoid Tuesdays. If you want to buy anything and you want it to grow, buy it on a Thursday, the day of Jupiter. Friday, Monday, Wednesday are also auspicious. Pray to your Tutelary Deity before buying anything and seek divine protection. Divine Grace will ensure that you will not lose.

Stop Loss - An important Factor

When you buy a scrip, know that it can appreciate or depreciate. In order to avoid too much loss, you have to fix a stop loss. Putting a 10 point stop loss is OK ( buy a scrip at 250 and put stop loss at 240 ). This will enable you to immediately get out of the scrip, if market dips viciously. Powerful reactions can happen at any time, catching us unawares. You can always buy another scrip with that money and book profit in that scrip, which will cover for loss in the first scrip. Everybody commits mistakes. Mistakes mean loss, nothing else. Correct decision means gain. There are many who are emotionally attached to a scrip, who, even when the scrip is going down hold on to it, thinking that it will appreciate later. Wishful thinking is not the way to become rich on the stock exchange. Check with your friends. Listen to all who participate in the market but do not take any decision based on anybody's advice. The market is a place where the imprudent lose money. With the blessings of Rahu & Jupiter, you can achieve stock market success !

Stock Market Astrology V

Stock Market Astrology Part V

( written on 06/10/2003 )

It is said that Jupiter in Leo is stronger than Jupiter in Cancer. Many astrological savants did predict a stock market boom in 2002, which never did happen. But once Rahu entered Aries, the Rupee and the Sensex moved forward registering phenomenal gains. A favourable Rahu in the 10th and Jupiter in the lunar second can only mean that - a stock market and a forex boom for India !

Stock market transactions need skill of a high order. There are successful persons who have made it a great art. Almost all the house are involved . The 2nd is the house of accumulated Wealth. The 5th rules intelligent speculation. The 9th rules Fortune or Luck which can make you or break you. The 11th rules income and the fulfillment of all desires. . The 12th House indicates loss, a reality in the stock markets. 8th House refers to unexpected gains. The 10th House rules profession. The 4th house refers to mental balance, a quality which is needed in an investor. The Ascendant is the base for any activity. The 7th house rules spouse, who can console us in times of loss. In other words, almost all the houses are important in a Natal or Horary chart, when one thinks about long-term/short-term investments in the highly volatile share market.

While assessing a horoscope for equity investment, we have to take the trinal lords ( the lords of 1, 5 & 9 ) into consideration. If the trinal lords are well placed and powerful, Rahu in 3,6,9 & 11 houses & Jupiter angular, then stock market success is guaranteed. Angular Jupiter can impart immense Divine Grace, which will prompt the investor to take the correct decision regarding selling & buying. Rahu represents the gambling urge. The 5th lord represents speculative ability, the 9th luck and the Ascendant lord, business ability.

Jupiter in Leo and Rahu in Taurus are very positive for the financial markets in India.

Transit of the North Node, Rahu

The transit of Rahu in Aries is good for IT industry. The IT industry is growing at the rate of 34%. IT scrips have registered good gains. Infosys is at 4560 and HCL Info at 322 ! After the results HCL Info shot up 80 points in 2 days. Satyam Computers is at 260. IT is the only sector where India has advantage over China, because of her good English language skills ( India is the world's largest English speaking nation ). Furthur gains can be expected in Infosys, Satyam, Geometric, HCL Info and other software scrips.

Jupiterian Transit

Jupiter rules financial markets, Forex and Stock. The rupee has been appreciating, thanks to Jupiter in Cancer. With the entry of Rahu into Aries, the stock market boomed. This planet of information and knowledge has a major say in king-making. Today, the millionaire is equal to a king ( Political power is a reflex of economic power - Marx ). Jupiter in Leo is more aggressive than Jupiter in Cancer. ( Cancer is a feminine sign ruled by the Moon. Leo is aggressive because of the dispositor being Sun ). Jupiter in Leo can uplift Indian economy & with politicians and the people willing, can make India a developed nation ! It is said that Jupiter shines like gold ( " Gurum Kanchana Sannibham " ) and his transit of Leo is very important from the perspective of Indian economy.

Jupiter rules banking shares. Along with SBI, ICICI Bank, other bank shares are also worth investing in. HDFC Bank, IDBI Bank, Karnataka Bank, J & K Bank, Federal Bank, South Indian Bank, State Bank of Travancore, State Bank of Mysore etc are also investment-worthy.

Saturnine Transit

Saturn rules machinery and steel. Companies dealing with Commercial Vehicles will fare better. Saturn is in the 2nd from India's Ascendant, Taurus. Tata Motors, Tisco, M & M , Ashok Leyland etc will do exceptionally well this year. Oil is also ruled by Saturn and Oil companies such as Reliance, IOC, IBP, IPCL, BP & HP will do well. Mining industry is also ruled by Saturn and this industry will do well. SAIL is doing well along with Jindal Steel and JISCO.

Mercurian Transit

Mercury rules telecommunications and Mercury getting exalted in Virgo will improve the prospects of Bharti Tele, MTNL and Shyam Tele. Mercury's exaltation is another bullish factor.

Venusian Transit

Venus rules media scrips. Mukta Arts and TV 18 are expected to do well. Venus rules vehicles and Maruti and TELCO is bound to go up. Venus in Libra is powerful and can lift the market up. Bajaj Auto is another scrip which has got good potential.

Solar Transit

In the Government of the Almighty, Sun is the King and Moon is the Queen. ( Rajanou Ravi Sheetagu ). Sun is nearing his deep debilitation sign & will enter Libra, on 18th October. This explains the verdict of the Supreme Court against the disinvestment of HPCL & BPCL & the reluctance of the politicians to disinvest HP & BP, which has affected the shares of these companies. There may not be any immediate disinvestment. These scrips have got high potential but may not move up immediately. Invest in these scrips only if you have a long term investment plan.

Stock Market Astrology IV

Stock Market Astrology Part IV

( Copyright G Kumar -05/10/2003 )

"Fortune favours the brave " - ( Nivasanthi Parakramasraya Na Vishadena Samam Samriddhaya ).

' High risk, high returns ' - this equation characterise the stock markets. It is clear that without taking calculated risks, one cannot develop in business.

The transit of the North Node, Rahu, which rules gambling is very important in the stock market equation. This planet rules all risk taking ventures. If the North Node is favourable and if Jupiter is indeed benevolent in a favourable house, one can go ahead and take calculated risks.

The North Node is in India's 10th and Jupiter in the second ( Cancer, Lunar Ascendant ). The Sensex ( 4552.92 ) and Rupee ( 45.40 ) have hit 38 month peaks ! Forex reserves have gone past $ 89 billion and may touch $ 100 b soon. Auto and automotive components exports have registered phenomenal growth, along with software and steel. Foreign investors averr that India is the best emerging market. FII inflows have crossed $ 14 b and the share market is poised to rise ! India, in contrast to China, has got good English language skills and better software skills. Foreigners relish working in India than in China, because of the language problem. The Indian stock markets are computerised and transparent. There are less scams. It is true that turnover on the NSE ( maximum $ 1 billion a day ) are way behind the turnover of London Stock Exchange ( $ 1000 b ) or New York ( $ 1000 b ) ( $ 1 b - Rs 4500 crores ). But it is only a matter of time that NSE and BSE catches up with LSE & NYSE ( at PPP estimates ).

The negative points that must be noted, are however, Mars in the 8th and Saturn in the 12th. These 2 planets are dragging and retarding progress. The adverse positions of these 2 are responsible for the sudden dips ( Sensex down to 4105 from 4469 ) and a feeling of anxiety and fear amongst the investor population. In Forex market also, Rupee is continuing its bull run against the greenback but there was a sudden dip earlier.

Venus moving over to Libra and Mercury getting exalted in Virgo will only improve the market. We have to remember that small declines are healthy as the market is continuing its bull run. ( Now there are no 500 point rises as in Harshad Mehta's time ). Saturn and Mars are the villains and we have to be cautious all the time.

" The smartness of the operator lies in booking loss and not in booking profit " . What does it mean ?

It is common experience that when we sell a scrip, it goes up ! When we buy a share, it goes down ! If the market is going to rise, we should hold on. ( In Technical Analysis, a bull run is characterised by rising Resistance and Support levels ). I bought SAIL three years back at 13.70. It declined to 8 and last month I sold it for 40! If you invest in a fundamentally sound scrip, there is no risk in holding on ! One should invest only in potential winners ! ( Another example was ICICI Bank. I bought it for 35. It declined to 18 and I sold it after 1 year at 151 ! ). One should not panic when the share one bought declines ! Nor when the share one sells goes up ! We do not control the market ! If you understand this, you will come to know that smartness is loss booking and not profit booking !

I bought SBI at 420 and sold it off at 449, bought Reliance at 408 and sold it off at 432, Infosys at 4512 and sold it off at 4633, ICICI Bank at 194 and sold it off at 207 & GACL at 219 and sold it off at 230. I am not bothered if it goes up. I booked profit. In the present situation, it appears as booking loss as the prices of these scrips have gone up !

( On the occult side, I protected myself by chanting the Karthiaveeryarjuna Mantra and wearing an Ohari Vipanana Vijayaprada Yantra, made by a Brahmin Tantric friend. Here is the K V Mantra.

Karthiaveeryarjuno Namah
Rajah Bahu Sahasravan

Tasya Samsmaranath Eva
Hritham Nashtam cha Labhyathe )

The Irrational Crowd & the Contrarian Investor

We have to understand that man is an irrational animal( Russell ) ( in direct contrast to the classical definition of man as a rational animal ) . The crowd is irrational and sentimental. During boom, all men view the market with rose-tainted glass thinking that the boom will last forever. No boom lasts for ever. Based on the bullish reports given by the media, the crowd pushes the market up. During a bear hug, the reverse happens. Crowds take the market to unjustifiably low levels. The irrational crowd is sentimental, not fundamental. A scrip is either underpriced or overpriced. It is overpriced in a bullish market and underpriced in a bearish market. Understand that the Market is cyclical and take advantage of booms and busts !

Insulate yourself from the contagion of the crowd. Being part of the crowd will get you nowhere. Book profits every now and then. Be a contrarian !

Knowledge - A criterion for success

Good ideas and good research are an absolute necessity in the market place. The market is not a roulette wheel. There is no substitute for Information. Along with Knowledge, hard work is called for. One should be alert and work hard for success. Fortune indeed favours the industrious !

Women are won by wooing

Fortune is won the same

Sure there will be lots of trouble

Sure there will be heaps of cares

Burdens that bend us double

Worries that come to wear

But we must still be pursuing

Something to see us through !

We recommend buying TISCO, Infosys, United Phosphorus, CMC, GAIL, Auro Pharma at their current support levels. Since the Sensex is at 4553, wait for the market to dip and buy these at their support levels. A reaction is expected at any time. A loss of 400 points to the Sensex can happen at any moment. On should wait for the market to decline and then enter at the current support level of the Sensex. Some scrips are moving sideways ( that is when the Sensex goes up, some scrips are coming down ). Such movements are to be expected. But, by and large, most of the cyclicals move up when the market goes up and comes down when the market comes down.

Please check the position of Rahu and Jupiter in your chart and their transits. People with Taurus as their Moon Sign should be careful, as Rahu is in the 12th. People with Virgo as their Moon Sign should also be cautious as Jupiter is in the adverse 12th. Rahu ( gambling ) and Jupiter ( Divine Grace ) are king makers !

Stock Market Astrology III

Stock Market Astrology Part III

( Copyright - G Kumar 03/10/2003 )

Jupiter in India's lunar second has initiated an economic revival, giving a good monsoon & a record rabi crop. The foodgrains production is estimated to be 220 million tonnes. Exports will cross the $55 billion dollar mark. The rupee is appreciating and G D P growth will be 5.7% and agricultural growth 4.3%. Even though India is still trailing behind China, it is an improved economic performance on India's part. Indian statistics adorn IMF' s website. Forex reserves have crossed $ 88.5 billion and will cross 100 billion soon. Result - a booming stock market !

Correlation between Lunar Phases and Stock Market Cycles

The Moon is posited in his own sign, in Cancer, in India's horoscope.

The Stock Market is ever fluctuating and small booms and busts are expected. The 10th of September was a Full Moon. The Moon plays a promiment role in the stock market equation. It was the beginning of the Dark Fortnight ( Krishna Paksha ), the Waning Moon. No wonder the stock market waned after that Black Wednesday ! ( The Sensex falling from 4469 to 4105 ). The 26th of September was the day of the New Moon, which initiated the Bright Fortnight ( Shukla Paksha ). No wonder the Market is waxing like the waxing Moon. ( The Sensex now at 4455 ).

Here we are giving a few tips to take advantage of the rising stock market along with some definitions. .

Resistance Level - Is the level when a scrip encounters resistance. People who could not sell it earlier now sells it as they think that its price is high.

Support Level - Is the level when a scrip gets support. People who could not buy it at the lowest rate of the scrip buy it and the scrip goes up.

Bull Phase - A rising market. Is characterised by rising resistance and support levels.

Bear Phase - A falling market. Is characterised by falling resistance and support levels.

Buy these Cyclicals at their current support levels

You have to understand not only the resistance and support levels of the Sensex ( 4469 & 4105 ) and the Nifty but also the resistance and support levels of pivotals. Support level is the best level to enter.

As a bull market is characterised by rising support levels, you may not be able to enter these scrips at the support levels mentioned below. Use your discretion, add some 10 to 15 points to their support levels and buy !

Name of Scrip Resistance Level Support Level

ONGC 621 542
Reliance 445 396
SBI 452 399
TISCO 273 247
Tata Motors 307 267

Since a bull market means rising resistance and support levels, you have to wait for the market to dip and enter at support levels. If you buy at high ( resistance levels ), then your profitability will be less. For example, buy SBI at 399 and sell at 452 in the present market. A bust is an opportunity to buy and a boom is an opportunity to sell. Greed is the enemy of sure profits.

If you want to take advantage of the rising market, check your horoscope and see whether the planet of Finance, Jupiter, is favourable. Rahu, the planet of gambling, a planet who can give crores, must also be taken into consideration. If you find these 2 planets favourable, you can go in for calculated risks, which will bring home the bacon !

Saturn rules Oil - ONGC, IOC, Reliance, MRPL etc are good buys at their support levels.

Jupiter rules Banking - ICICI Bank & SBI are good picks at their support levels.

Sun rules PSU Shares - HP, BP, VSNL etc are good buys at their support levels.

Rahu rules IT - Infosys, HCL Info , Wipro etc are good buys at their support levels.

Venus rules Auto - Maruti, Tata Motors are good buys. MICO and Bharat Forge are also good buys as they deal with auto components. Never buy at resistance levels !

It is said that Warren Buffett, known as the world's greatest investor, bought blue-chips at incredibly low levels and disinvested them at high levels to become the second richest man in US ( Net worth $ 36 billion ). Do a Warren Buffett !

Stock Market Astrology Part II

( written on 28/09/2003 )

"The great fortunes on stock exchanges have been made not by those who knew what to buy and sell but by those who have mastered the art of buying and selling at the correct time and price "

In the Stock Market timing is all important

Portfolio Management Astrology

Astrology can be a diagnostic tool like Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis.

One should understand one's beneficial planets and invest in the industries ruled by those planets. If Jupiter is strong in your horoscope, you can invest in Pharma shares like Ranbaxy, Dr Reddy's, Aurobindo Pharma & Divi's Labs. . If Venus is strong, you can invest in Auto Industry shares like Maruti and Tata Motors. . If Mercury is strong, you can invest in Telecommunications like Bharti Tele, MTNL & Shyam Tele. . Saturn rules Steel and if you find Saturn powerful in your horoscope, you can invest in steel shares such as SAIL, Tisco, Jisco & Jindal Steel. Mars rules electricity and if Mars is powerful in your natal chart, you can invest in shares such as BSES , Tata Power & Alsthom Power. If Rahu is strong, IT shares like Infosys, HCL Info & Hughes Software. . Oil is ruled by Saturn and such shares as IOC, ONGC etc are good choices if your Saturn is powerful. PSU shares are ruled by the Sun and BP, HP etc can bring home the bacon if Sun be indeed strong in your horoscope.

While picking shares, one should avoid Chandrashtama and negative transits. Beneficial Jupiter can veto all other negative transits. The Transit of the North Node, Rahu is also very important. ( I only entered the market when my Jupiter transited the 2nd and Rahu the 10th and my Portfolio is showing profit ). Venus also ruled business and has a major say in stock market dynamics. One should consult not only a financial expert but also an astrologer as Luck can be a major factor in stock market speculation.

Knowledge - a Prerequisite

Knowledge of Stock Market dynamics is also a prerequisite. One should understand the Wave Theory - that the Stock Market fluctuates all the time, even within a day. If it is a Bull run, then the Market will rise but only as a Wave. If it is a Bear Phase, the Market will descend as a Wave. The Market reacted after touching an all time high of 4469 this time. It descended as a Wave to 4105 and then ascended to today' s level of 4382 ! If you can take advantage of the small booms and busts within the Bull Phase or the Bear Phase, Fortune will favour you !

The two emotions which rule are Greed & Fear. If you can control Greed and Fear, you have won ! If you can keep your equanimity when everybody seems to lose theirs, Fortune will grace you. If on the other hand, if you succumb to Greed and Fear, you will be part of the crowd. Being part of the crowd will get you nowhere; you can only make others rich !

Speculation - A dangerous temptation

You may be tempted to speculate. Avoid speculation. A speculator is he who takes big risks to gain profits. Be an intelligent investor ( an investor is he who takes only calculated risks ). If you gain because of speculation one day, the next day you will lose. "What you gain on the swings, you lose on the roundabouts", remarks Peter Lynch.

Contrarian Investing

If you had entered TISCO at 130, by now your capital would have been doubled. Just imagine if the Sensex reaches 5500 or above. TISCO will be 500 ! So this calculated risk is what the intelligent investor should take. Not only TISCO but other good scrips will aid you in capital appreciation. Be a good contrarian investor, one who buys cheap and sells dear !

Risk Management

It is true that high returns have high risks associated with it. So we should not be too greedy and if we get decent profit, we should get out of that scrip. Paper profits are no good and booking profits is the most essential aspect of investment. If you dont sell your shares at the proper time ( known as the Contrarian's skill of selling high ), you cannot in reality make profits. Now the Market is dominated by the FIIs ( Foreign Institutional Investors ) whose habit is to book profit immediately. They will not wait , like Harshad Mehta, for ACC to become 10000!. So understand the nature of the market. Book profits every now and then. If you book profits, your money is freed for recycling. You can buy other scrips at declines. Since the market is ever fluctuating and never steady at the same Index, , you will get opportunity to buy at declines. A bust is an opportunity for buying. A boom is an opportunity for selling. Manage your risks !

Cash Flow and the Stock Market

The FIIs so far have invested more than $ 14 billion. This cash flow has enabled the Sensex to reach 4382. If they withdraw this cash, the market will come down. During boomtime, money chases stocks. Now it is money chasing stocks. You should beware about the Bear Phase. It will be shares chasing money, then ! So book profits every now and then and be on your toes !

Electional Astrology

Hart de Fow and Robert Svoboda in their book " Timing & Astrology" remarks that the best days which are auspicious are, in order, Thursday, Friday, Monday and Wednesday. If you plan long-term investments, you should select these days for picking up potential blue-chips.

This article is not based merely on theoretical principles. I have been dabbling in the Stock Market since 1987 and some scrips have given me good returns. Reliance ( my Venus is favourably posited in the 11th in Taurus ), Infosys ( my Rahu favourably posited in the 6th, in Sagittarius ) & Dhanalakshmi Bank ( my Jupiter is in the Ascendant in Cancer ) have given me good capital appreciation! Experience is the best teacher !

Stock Market Astrology Part I ( written on 01/09/2003 )


Cancer, India's Lunar Ascendant

India's birth constellation is Pushya and India is undergoing the dreaded Elarata Saturnine phase.

India's Independence Chart ( 15/08/1947, 00.00 AM, Delhi )

Ket Jup

We have said in our Financial Astrology Page ( ) that the Indian Stock Market will go upto 6000. But the path to 6000 will not be easy. There will be vicious fluctuations and cyclical upheavals. There will be many small booms and busts in the market. This is because of the Elarata Saturn which India is undergoing.

The Stock Market revived due to Jupiter 's transit of the 2nd. Jupiter, the planet of finance, can uplift the economy during his second transit. No wonder the media is talking about the 4.3 % agricultural growth, the 6.5 % G D P growth and the good monsoon which triggered it, Sensex above 4200, and the growth of sectors which record more than 30% growth - software, steel , auto & automotive components !

Small booms and busts are to be expected. The Wave Theory still holds good in stocks. The Sensex dipped after it touched 4469 and touched 4134, a loss of 335 points. But bull run means rising resistance and support levels. The earlier support level was 3950 and now it is 4105. The resistance level of 4469 will be overtaken when the market overcomes that level in the next small bull run.

Correlation between Stock Market Cycles & Jupiterian Cycles

The last boom was when Jupiter was in the 11th in India's horoscope ( 2001 ). Jupiter was in the adverse 12th and 1st in the next 2 years and we had the Stock Market in a state of Recession. Now with Jupiter in the favourable 2nd, we can expect the stock market to move up considerably.

Contrarian Investing

This is the quintessence of the stock market. " Buy when everybody is selling, sell when everybody is buying", which in essence means " Buy cheap, sell dear".

We have to understand the negative aspect of the secondary market. The secondary market, taken in isolation and as a closed system, is basically a zero sum game. When a man sells a share, either the buyer or the seller has made a mistake. Money only changes hands. So smart investing is Contrarian Investing, buying at unjustifiably low levels and selling at unjustifiably high levels ! There is no such thing as an Intrinsic Value for a share. Markets are always irrational, unpredictable and fluctuating. There will be intra-day fluctuations, intra-week fluctuations and intra-month fluctuations. Within the Bull Phase and the Bear Phase, there will be small booms and busts, making it difficult to predict the future. There are two ways to combat these types of uncertain fluctuations - Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis

Technical Analysis

This is drawing the graph of the Index every day. All scrips display regular and recurrent patterns of price behaviour. During the last boom of 2001, the Sensex touched 6000, emulating the earlier boom. You will come to know about the resistance & support levels of the Sensex and all scrips if you take regular graphs. Graphs can be made in Excel.

Fundamental Analysis

F A is studying the fundamentals of scrips - the Book Value of a share, the Price/Earnings of a share, the EPS of a share and then investing based on these fundamentals. You can buy the highly potential shares at their support levels.

The Cyclical Nature of the Stock Market & Business Cycles

The Business Cycles of Boom and Recession rule all markets. A boom means that the economy has extended itself and a Recession becomes due to restore it to its original balance. The Business Cycles of Prosperity and Adversity come to all men.

We find that all markets are cyclical and the Stock Market is the most volatile of all markets. During the 1992 boom, the Sensex reached 4000 and then it crashed to 2000 odd. During the Ketan Parekh initiated bull run of 2001, it reached 6151 !. The current boom may very well surpass that level ! Slowly and steadily the crowd is getting involved and all sorts of bullish news are given by the media. It is paradoxical that during Bull Phases all sorts of bullish news come from the media and during Bear Phases, only bearish news !

Scrips which are worth investing are IOC, ONGC, SBI, Dr Reddy's, Ranbaxy, CIPLA, Lupin, Tata Motors, HPCL, BPCL, IBP, Infosys, Hughes Software, HCL Infosys, G A C L etc.
