Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a second consecutive but small white body candle. This is positive.
Further, the index is above the 5 days moving average. Moreover, the velocity parameters which were negatively trended have now turned neutral. All these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further upmove unfolding. Incidentally, these may be the first signs of a bottoming out pattern. A crossover by the index above the 15 days average will confirm the same. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy, until a clear reversal signal is visible.
