Frothy sectors witness profit taking

  • In recent days market had become a bit frothy with some sector stocks like solar and energy having back to back 4-5 days rallies. So a correction in some of those sector was a possibility as profit taking kicks in.
  • When a move gets going for few days like we witnessed in last 5-6 days, those who did not participate in it, or were positioned for it, at some stage feel the desperate urge to participate. which often tends to be the point of short term reversal.
  • A small period of rally also leads to couple of trades working for a trader and that often leads to overconfidence. Mr. Market then quickly throws in a punch or two to remind who is the boss.
  • From a trade mechanic's point of view, when faced with a unexpected strength like we witnessed yesterday morning, your first instinct should be to lighten up in strength. Stops work poorly in fast markets.
  • As a general observation fast trends tend to climax, slow orderly trends tend to persist.
