Observation
The Sand P 500 and the Nifty were down hard last week. Indicators are bearish but the market is becoming oversold. Looking for downside to continue after an oversold bounce.

Changes less than 0.5% are considered neutral

The US market and Nifty fell hard last week. Signals are bearish for the upcoming week. The markets are in crash mode and are likely to continue major breakdowns in 2016 after an oversold bounce. The critical levels to watch are 1900 (up) and 1860 (down) on the S & P and 7500 (up) and 7400 (down) on the Nifty. A significant breach of the above levels could trigger the next big move in the above markets. You can check out last week’s report for a comparison. You can also check out snapshots of the 
S and P 500 and Nifty Indices. Love your thoughts and feedback.

My Asset Allocation Strategy (Indian Market)

Cash - 40%
Bonds - 20%
Fixed deposit - 20%
Gold - 5%
Stocks - 10% ( Majority of this in dividend funds)
Other Asset Classes - 5%

My belief is that stocks are relatively overvalued compared to bonds and attractive buying opportunities can come along after 1-2 years. In a deflationary scenario no asset class does well other than U.S bonds, the U.S dollar and the Japanese yen, so better to be safe than sorry with high quality government bonds and fixed deposits. Cash is the king always. Of course this varies with the person's age.
