Iphone MTrader playing up. Sometimes for some counters it shows half of its actual value. Eg for PCH it shows .65 some times. I wasn't surprise still Laughing

VONE LT targets would be 26-30 on Butterfly Pattern (if continue current leg. 5-0 confirmed pattern would take us to 22-24.
so we need 5-0 pattern to continue and SUPPORT is @ 17.5-17.4 with 16 being Hard SL.

Good luck with your trading.

Appreciate your comments on the VONE.N chart posted earlier.
Trying to concentrate only on few counters such as JKH/VONE/CTC.

NEST needs to come to 1850 imo.
CTC looks reasonably poised for another run from 1000-1250/1450 upside in few months.
JKH -Testing 300-302

Feed back would be most welcome.

ooh i did not see this post earlier. Very Happy 

Also S4 4G Cool 

BTW...appreciate if RB & Smallv can put some charts on JKH & VONE.

Really miss your presence on the Technical Side.

B the looks and recent PA CTC.N is holding 1000. Guess some are happy to collect in the 975-1000 before a sudden upsurge.

Although not holding CTC atm wish i can collect about 500-750.

Only worry would be its failure to move up would mean coming down for further collection at much lower levels. unless we have real cash one should not BUY on credit.

Seen an appreciation of 6-7rs in the opening session on JKH.we have come to a critical level of resistance 268-270 has to break with good volumes,this week for further confirmation of jkh rally.

268-270 will be 100% on FIB from recent low of 240 and a new journey for JKH here onwards provided no market jitters on this counter.will look through 285-300 minimum in coming weeks/months or perhaps days.

Trade Safe
Good Luck

JKHclosed @269 today after somber trading in the morning.
This is good sign to ease pressure on SL 265/- Smile

On VONE which i am very much interested so some trades @ 17.8 and 17.9 in the morning which i could not understand why there is no retail interst in view of Dividends XD on 30/7/13,however afternoon session we saw some bigger trades changing hands @18. CMP 18.10 -18.20 gives us clear indication come monday some brief interst to trade around 18.5-19 with 19 being critical RES to break on the LT journey towards 22+.
The selling pressure may continue on XD date.however i have failed to understand that 17.50 being the last LOW & on announcement date the counter was trading around 17.90 with 1 more day for XD left the counter still trading @ around 18-18.10Rs where as this should have captured more interest which it did infact for a brief moment to hit intraday high of 18.7 soon after the announcement but lost its steam since then for further collection @ 17.9-18.There is however a short term risk as VONE has not crossed critical 19rs and in my view BEARs & BULLs are fighting it out, so 19-17 zone would be critical for both.

The CMP of 17.6 could further pressure below to 17 n 16. The latter can attract more buyers . evidently we could see this as an early formation of CD leg.
So those planning to BUY and accumulate, will get an opportunity to collect further.
Please do not BUY on credit.if you are a lover of VONE.
Good Luck

Have been monitoring VONE, PABC.

Hope to get in @ the Right price on PABC (BUY pending) This BUY would be short term and will SELL with 3-4Rs profit.

VONE expecting further SELL pressure....Got in @ 18Rs. So no worries.

5-0 Pattern has got invalidated with CMP @17, I am looking for other Patterns.

Good Luck
