Weekly Stock Watch for Technical Traders

Market Analysis... NSE ASI Posts Bearish Performance

The NSE All Share Index lost last week as it dipped 0.3% to print at 27,698.69 points. As has been the case recently, the Negative Directional Movement Index (-DMI) still outstrips the Positive Directional Movement Index (+DMI) and continues to display a super-strong ADX (Average Directional Movement Index), indicating the NSEASI's reluctance to rise to glory. In the coming week, we expect the index to continue to wander within the negative territory. But why are we pessimistic? All indicators strongly suggest there are no possible triggers to herald a rebound in the near term.


Our BUY Recommendation

A week ago, out of our 5 picks, 1 closed in the red - DANGCEM (-0.3%). Based on last week's observations, ZENITH (ADX: 29.16; MFI: 75.78; %B: 57.07) has strong prospects for fortune in the near term. This stock currently hovers around the oversold region with its +DMI bullying -DMI with >25 ADX value, signifying a strong trend. Attention! Attention! Attention! The Nigerian market is currently not for the timorous.


Our SELL Recommendation

Previous week's observations also suggest that NASCON (ADX: 43.53; MFI: 97.73; %B: 81.95), OKOMUOIL (ADX: 53.86; MFI: 95.92  %B: 80.69), INTRBREW (ADX: 41.59; MFI: 89.49; %B: 57.54) and CUSTODIAN (ADX: 26.56; MFI: 84.12; %B: 29.16) top our wish list for investors yearning lean pockets. As it stands, these stocks are tremendously heading for the deep with -DMIs outstripping +DMIs and stronger ADX values too (well above 25). Closest to the overbought region and with a strong ADX, NASCON emerges top potential loser.
