Alpha.India - ITC up 13%

The Nifty weekly Evening Star formations continue to hold and suggest that the market view remains “Up but Topping”.  Though prices have broken out of the sideways action and suggest further upside, we continue to look at the current formation as a completing w-x-y-x-z corrective which could take prices to previous highs or marginally higher. Our Numeric Ranking continues to suggest HDFC as the top potential underperformer and Wipro as the top potential outperformer. The sector ranking suggests that Consumer Durables and Banks are most likely to underperform the broad market, meanwhile Bseoil should outperform in the weeks ahead.

Our pair tracker remains unchanged, with the four pairs illustrated below. Our top pair is SBI – Maruti which has brought gains over 10%. We are alert regarding a signal on the Nifty – Tisco, Nifty – ACC, Nifty – Wipro, Nifty – ONGC and HDFC – Wipro pairs.

Our long only – short only tracker carries 11 positive and 5 negative signals, with fresh buy signals on Nifty, CNXIT and Ranbaxy. Our best negative stock remains Tata Motors , meanwhile Sun is the best positive one according to the NR filtering. The top winner remains ITC with 13% gains.

The latest Alpha India carries long only – short only signals, pair tracker, numeric ranking, numeric ranking changes, performance cycles.

Alpha India

Alpha is a pair trading, long only - short only strategy and Numeric Ranking product based on TIME fractals. Time arbitrage, Time Triads, Time fractals are terms coined by Orpheus Research. The signals are carried over three different time frames viz. sub minor (2-3 days), minor (10-30 days) and intermediate (above 30 days). This is a daily signal product. The signals will be illustrated through tracker and running portfolios. Alpha can be used by fund managers for relative allocations, traders for leverage bets and high net worth clients for selective trades. This is a part of the time triads analytics developed by Orpheus Research.

Performance cycles is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves in a range say from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.

Time arbitrage portfolio legs should be risk weighted before any implementation.

Time is a social construct and we see time through the life and nature around us. Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.

Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals. Performance cycles can be studied for any time frame, for as small as a tick data to multiyear time frames. This objective approach to performance cyclicality can explain why intermarket analysis is an area of study? Why bonds and commodities tend to be inversely related? What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation? When and why does gold outperform and underperform silver? Econohistory can objectively answer these questions, using performance cycles, time fractals and past data. Economic history is mathematical.
