A break below 47000 +/- 300 was observed with a floor break during the week but weekly closing has once again been sustained above the floor. The bulls have begun to wave up but only their continued marching forward will ensure their survivability. Looking forward the stance should be accumulating the dip and protecting the profits. The week ahead will be the decision-maker. There is not much to analyze from this week as its continuation of the same stance.

Market capitalization has remained flat. Gains made in one week were lost in the next. With average weekly capitalizations fluctuating in a narrow range. This doesn't really point towards anything but a painful range-bound market. There is nothing visible in immediate range to speculate on it. Hold with patience and carry on.

Pivotal rejection at 48200 +/-100 shot the bourse down harder than expected but the bottom line at 47000 +/- 300 held on and this may prove to be the new floor. All hints point towards a cycle reset which has kept the market range bound. Looking forward we maintain the stance of accumulation on the dip. Currently, the index stands at the edge of bearish territory but with significant exhaustion of deep downside. Patience and preservation will be a winner. All major support and resistance levels are marked below on the chart.
An interesting development noticed is the increased volatility after the launch of 60 & 90 days futures. This has given rise to uncertainty in the market and the effect may take few months to level off. This is only a hypothesis as there is not enough data to back the theory so one may just proceed with keen observance before weighing in an opinion. Any further development will be notified in this blog.
To better understand this post you may read the updates made in the last few weeks.
An interesting metric to observe as the index hit a new high of capitalization on the first day of the week but failed to sustain later. However, the week still closed with positive capitalization gains which may be the catalyst for the performance in the weeks ahead. Overall the outlook is neutral with wait and watch approach.

Turbulent days of the bourse come to an end with stability appearing on the horizon. During this time many traders had panicked and lost their cool along with their money. Because impatient trader and their money part ways very soon in the stock market. 47000 +/- 300 remained the absolute floor showing multiple bounces eventually signaling a return of bulls. Hurdle remains at pivotal resistance of 48200 +/- 100 while a double top around 49000 +/- 300 is expected. All major support and resistance levels are marked on the chart below. Looking forward the strategy remains taking advantage of the dip with a special focus on cyclicals such as cement, steel, auto and refineries.
With two public holidays during the week, market capital does not represent an accurate picture with the weekly average still closing in the red but holding well to its benchmark. We expect to see better days ahead.

The index remained totally dull and dead throughout the week holding the 47000 +/- 300 as a support by the thread. Rumors blame the situation on developments in Afghanistan and a tussle between brokers and PSX management. To avoid any speculation, we have always traded by pure technical review only. Looking forward, the stance remains taking advantage of the dip but the situation overall isn't clear with a directionless market. We may expect better days ahead after passing the long weekend due to two days of Moharram Holidays. Wait and see approach may be the best remedy.

In a rather unorthodox update, today is not about stocks but market capitalization data is updated below.
I have taken a break to emotionally redeem myself. I do feel happier and better connected to my inner self. I did get a second lease on life and it has shown me new realities and a different perspective on life for a better cause. Life is a lot more than wealth and material. It is also about connecting with our real inner self, cherishing great moments of passion, happiness, joy, and making great memories with dear ones. Time once passed will never return. Often tangled in a web of materialism and wealth building, are we trampling our most precious and invaluable life for paper? . One can never feel the true happiness of life without being humble and emphatically connecting with others.
To give and receive unconditional love, acceptance, trust, honor, loyalty, and respect is truly the greatest joy of this mortal life. To understand that life is merely a phase that must come to an end for everyone, yet we struggle very hard to achieve materialistic possessions but do very little effort to connect with our true inner self and try to understand who are we? We take nothing to our graves and leave nothing behind except great memories. Even material possessions of the deceased left behind are valued for the memories and great moments they remind us of. Let us begin a new struggle in life where accomplishments are not measured in numbers but in emotions, empathy, and passion. A way of life where workaholism is not tolerated, emotions are respected and happiness is cherished over materialism. Where work-life is balanced with healthy personal time to connect with friends and family for creating great memories together. Where every photo, every possession, and every penny earned or spent tells a story of great joy, pleasure, emotions, and feeling alive.
Let us not be mere mortals who exist to follow a robotic routine but a society where we live and behave more humanely with pure emotions. A pledge to not corrupt that baby-like innocence of our future generations with shadows of fear, greed, and a rat race to the top. Let us build a society that is not about valuing our existence by our wealth and jobs. Where relations are carved out of true passion and emotion. A place where children are raised to feel human first, have empathy as their core values, and be at peace with their true inner self. A culture that is free of pride, prejudice, racism, hate, bigotry, and stereotyping? Can we do that? A new day has come with new questions to think and ponder? As one of my nearest and dearest friends always says, "there is 5% hope even when 95% is gone". Do we all have that hope?
Have a very nice and bright day and do let us know your views in the comments section below.

Initially, we planned to have no blog update as only two trading days in the week with no significant move to notice. However, eventually out of habit here is a belated updated. We expect an unstable market ahead due to roll over a week. Major support and resistance are marked below. The strategy is to accumulate on the dip.

We wish our followers a very happy Eid Al-Adha 1442.
Looking at the bourse, another re-test of pivotal resistance at 48100 +/- 100 is expected, and with holidays ahead not much can be said. Looking forward, August futures will open with an addition of 60 and 90 days contracts which should smoothen the short-term volatility and provide more long-term swings. Overall, we remain upbeat on the market with a buy-on dip strategy. All major support and resistance levels are marked on the chart below.
Average weekly capitalization remained flat and closed at a negligible loss. We attribute this behavior to holiday-oriented profit-taking. The week ahead has much of its trading days off.

The pivotal rejection came to play once again and we may see some more see-saw ahead with dip presenting a buying opportunity. Major levels are marked on the chart below. Small to mid-cap remain under focus and the expected outlook is see-saw behavior in the short term. The pivot has been lowered to 48100 +/- 100.
Average weekly market cap is struggling in a narrow range but after two weeks of losing, it finally closed in the positive. Events that may influence the equities are MTB auctions on 14-Jul.

A perfect honoring of 47000 +/- 300 was observed which was previous resistance acting as support. 48200 +/- 100 remains pivotal resistance to be re-tested for the second time. The overall strategy remains swing trade with buy on the dip. All levels are marked on the chart below, for better understanding read the previous updates.
Although the average weekly capitalization once again closed at a loss, the trend is sustaining itself above the benchmark barely by a thread. This keeps the situation hopeful with some common-sense measures. [Edit] In the money market there is PIB auction on 7-Jul.
