Observation
The Sand P 500 and the Nifty were up last week. Indicators are bullish. The Vix is back in complacency mode. Looking for a top post the FOMC.

**Neutral
Changes less than 0.5% are considered neutral


The markets rallied last week. Signals are bullish for the upcoming week and this bounce is on the verge of completion. The tape has been very strong the last few days and downside momentum must be confirmed below 2050 for short positions. The markets should encounter resistance at higher levels post the FOMC meeting. There will be more downside upcoming in the #Nifty and the S and P 500, with at least a retest of the lows for the S and P 500 near 1867 and Nifty near 7550 in the upcoming months. You can check out last weeks 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.
