Indian Market Volatility Surging Relative to US Market Volatility

Indian market volatility has been surging off late relative to US market volatility much like in November 2016 when the last meaningful correction of 10% occurred. With the market close to record highs could complacency kill the cat yet again? Possible triggers - over valuation (p/e > 25), over bullish technicals, a slowing economy, you name it.

Why I am Bearish on the Indian Stock Market Nifty Index?

Thursday, 14 May 2015

Rounding Top Pattern in the Indian Stock Market Nifty Index Suggests Lower levels for the Nifty in the Months Ahead

The weekly chart of the Indian stock market Nifty index shows a rounding top formation that targets 6000 on the Index. This coincides with a rounding bottom that is forming on the weekly chart in the India Vix which is a measure of Indian stock market volatility suggesting an upsurge in volatility in the upcoming months. The pattern suggests a level of 35 for the India #Vix up over 50% from current levels. This implies significant downside for the Nifty in the upcoming months.
Incidentally the India Vix has traded below the US Vix recently and a catch up to the upside is likely as the India Vix tends to be significantly higher than the US Vix.

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.
