2.    Technical Indicators 

The index is currently trading above its 50-day EMA and 200-day EMA. We can see the convergence between shorter term EMA and longer term EMA. If the shorter term EMA crosser longer term EMA from below this will signal the start of the new Bullish trend. And the convergence area will act as a support zone for the trend. We are likely to stay above 1200 level as the index is currently above its shorter term and longer term Moving Average. 

 

As the market is overbought any correction seen from 1300 area will reach maximum to the level of 1220 which is its 61.8% retracement level from the low of 1100 to current peak. Momentum Indicators are seem highly overbought. But the overall trend remains to be in favors of bull.

 

Fundamental Analysis

 The economy is anticipated to grow by 6.2% in fiscal year (FY)2019, marginally down from 6.3% in FY2018. On the demand side, growth in public infrastructure spending and private investment as well as buoyant government expenses will drive growth in FY2019. Gross domestic product (GDP) growth at 6.3% is envisaged for FY2020, assuming a normal monsoon and no untoward circumstances such as floods devastating crop production. Average annual inflation will edge up to 4.4% in FY2019 from 4.2% in FY2018. Inflation averaged 4.2% in the first 7 months of FY2019, above the 3.7% result in the year-earlier period. Data to mid-February 2019 show that trade deficit has surpassed the net invisible earnings, widening the current account deficit to $1.5 billion, slightly up from a deficit of $1.4 billion in the year earlier period. Downside risks to outlook in FY2020 center on challenges to smooth implementation of fiscal federalism.

 

The national accounts statistics of the fiscal 2074-75 BS launched by Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) revealed that the contributions of primary sector to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) have been on decreasing trend whereas the contributions by service sector are on the rise. The economy has attained the growth rate of 6.81% above the estimation and projections made by international agencies like ADB, IMF and World Bank for Nepal. But the estimation of economic growth of 8% made by the budget last year seems like to be unattainable after seeing the 9-month performance of the economy.

               

Investment Themes 

·         Equitiesare gaining positive momentums in a meanwhile and seems to be at RISK ON stage.

·         Remaining long on equities is justifiable at present scenario.

·         Increase in Investor participation had increased the Volume tremendously.

·         Economic growth rate seems to be at its pace and above its estimation as projected by International agencies like ADB, IMF and World bank.

·         Decrease in inflation will flatten the yield curve in near term.

·         FDI commitment/acceptance of proposals for FDI is to be watched closely.
