The stock is in downtrend and overall market is downtrending. Any trade which goes against the market trend is not correct and can hit the stop loss. The stock is just consolidating before it is making its next down move.


I have no knowledge of technical charts.Found some SMA & DMA data. Seems bearish trend ?

Also sharing fundamental analysis of JD

All 3 parameters are good except valuation & return/efficiency…may be waiting till valuations get further attractive can be a strategy

Slow growth is a concern since last 12 Quarters


you are absolutely right and market has punished for the same . it was in down trend and do mentioned . i was betting on triple bottom and RSI so 725 was my stop loss .
And i did not consider fundamental aspect since it was low risk trade .

I have read sethufan s comment he was completely right ,but i was of view that it may bounce bez of triple bottom.

I could have wait till it close above short term moving average .

sir can you please share the information about the fundamental data which you have posted , it will be of great help .


From whatever I read about double bottoms and triple bottoms, its not enough for stock prices to move from the stated double/triple bottoms.

They need to take out the intermediate peak posted between these bottoms with higher volumes and only then the pattern is said to be confirmed.

Jumping in early without confirmation esp in companies where one is not confident about what kind of results are due would lead to a lot of grief.

I dont track/know stock prices of justdial but posting here bcos the term double/triple bottom needs to be properly used and understood.


Sir you are absolutely right all price has stages of confirmation and that too price and volume is more important factor it was an bottom picking trade , where one can have plan B to sell because if such trades negates will have momentum on other side here in this case momentum on sell side.

But i took risky entry with out confirmation was my mistake in this case but i have made nice sum in these type of ugly bottoms recently in hind zinc . It is Part of the game , got nice insight and learning which has sharpen my skills . And thank full to all members , i will be on nerves while taking any decision hence forth .


Sir i am waiting for your reply , i really need the source information that you have posted .If any other member can help regarding this please post the information .

Fundamental data is from website…check my “VP thread on fundamental analysis & valuation made easy”. Rating is subjective. you may have your own standards

Market doesn’t punish so much for slow growth. Even good co. gets slow some times.However in JD case people/investor feel, the future of JD or JD type biz model is not scalable/attractive.Its getting hammered like anything.Valuations are getting attractive, however question is will people use just dial.I use google, flipkart, amazon, naukri, irctc, clear trip…many other web services but not Just Dial.

From long term technical analysis perspective the data for this stock is insufficient for example currently the prices have entered uncharted territory, also what may have looked like a triple bottom could also be a triangle. In case of JD the price move seems to be what is known as a triple zig-zag formation in all probability. You can draw a trend channel and see that the fall from highs of the stock remains in a trend channel. This is how corrections work. In order to determine if this is a corrective fall (from highs ) that will be reversed completely or if it is a major trend that may lead to value destruction, you can use this channel to help you. If this is a corrective fall then you will find that the prices will break from this trend channel on the upside. If this is a major impulse move down indicating long term value destruction the trend channel will be broken to the downside. Un-fortunately since previous trade data is not available as the stock was not listed. We have to perform this kind of detective work to determine its future course. But seeing the price action so far imho this is a triple zig-zag at work and this is probably the final leg of the fall. This analysis will be confirmed once the prices break above the upper trend line of the trend channel.

PS: Nifty too has a triple ziz-zag formation which probably ended with an impulsive ending diagonal triangle on 20th Jan (which i happened to write an article on the same day There is high probability that we may have begun a bull run as far as nifty is concerned. Nifty IT and Nifty Pharma are likely to outperform because they have lead this break so far. If some can suggest some good stocks to look at from these sectors, i would be grateful.

The channel I was mentioning … bounced off over it … interestingly the last fall came after a triangle… trends appearing after a triangle are the last movement in the direction of trend before it reverses for a substantial counter trend or a completely new trend.

With today’s up move it seems we have a 5-wave up movement in the stock which makes the recent lows a potential long term bottom. Though it is possible that the stock may substantially correct its rise from 380 before going to the next leg of the rally and break the upper line of the channel.

Disc: Went long on bounce from the trend channel, intend to add more on corrections. Will hold till the trend clarifies itself either way.

Just dial is not changing with time as it should be.

In this space ,there are lots of startup comes and eat justdial lunch.
Let’s me explain you deep :

  1. Food - Restaurant

    2. swaggy

I am seeing shift here, people are seeing more value in vertical business and company,
as compare to horizontal.
and vertical player can give you extra benefit and convince as compare to justdial.

You can see this shift in result as well as.
so My idea is not invest in it.


Just dial corrects from the trend line and is coming back to test the upper line of the trend channel again. Lets see if the trend channel is able to hold on 2nd test. A break of the trend channel for me would confirm end of wave 2 correction for the stock and a possible wave 3 in action, which is where major returns accumulate. If it manage to stage this break out in this leg the stock should be able to recover most of its losses from its peak. The right price action would be important, because if it is indeed a wave 3 there should be substantial rallies coming forth in this stock.

With the general stock market entering a more matured stage of the rally from 6830 on Nifty, it might need to tide over a substantial correction in the general stock market as well.

Disc: 2-3% of my portfolio.

I think just dial might get a good up move from here, recent buyback by the promoters and also HDFC securities bought huge quantities. The chart also hints about the upmove, any views?

Very nice move today. Is this a good sign for reversal for short term? Any views ?

So I wasn’t wrong after all. It did change its trend. lets see how far it goes.

Q4 results came out today

@Malkd - it will be helpful to know your views on the results

They are currently at probably the lowest bottom business wise… But the stock price may not be at lowest bottom lol.
They currently have dual factors working against them…

  1. Their entire target market ie smes are struggling and will continue to struggle for the next few quarters with lock downs in play and covid raging.
  2. Their expenses have shot up with the launch of jdmart and they won’t make much ground here profit wise for at least 2 more quarters. So revenue will stay mute and expenses will continue staying high.

The comfort is that even at this low point there is no existential threat due to their huge cash reserves and no debt and low asset model. Also, their business model strength is showing since they have managed to keep a respectable amount of organic traffic with almost no ad spend. Their ad expenses for fy 21 was 6.8 crores vs 68 crores of FY20.
However, the green shoots are very much visible.

A few quarters down the line they’ll start spending on ads again and their inorganic traffic will aid their top line from what can now be considered base line traffic which is already pretty impressive considering its all organic!
Their jdmart venture should start generating returns towards the end of this year and while it won’t show on the balance sheet yet their Concall will be key.

What I suspect will happen is their Q1 will be a washout too so I don’t expect the price to go anywhere but towards its 200 dma levels over the next few months.
I also suspect q2 will be poor. So we have about 6 months of poor results and price pressure and volatility ahead of us along with opportunity costs.

Personally il be holding and adding at lower levels over this next year if it reaches on or under 200 dma levels. I’ve seen enough to know that once their ad spends are back to pre covid levels and covid goes back to ummm… Pre covid levels, and jdmart starts fructifying(I have huge faith in this venture) there will be a turnaround. If I had 4800 crores I’d buy the entire business though I’m pretty sure it wilI be available near 4000 crores soon… So while I feel its undervalued there may be a higher discount on the offering. I do think the management is capable and honest too and have handled this tough period + launch as best they could.
I also love buying cash rich, low debt, asset light businesses at their bottom and since its a platform based business all the better since there isn’t any corporate governance issues I can see so I don’t foresee losing too much here in the medium term even in the worst case scenario.
Will be attending the Concall and posting further thoughts on Monday night
