Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed three consecutive doji patterns (indicating indecisiveness amongst investors) has formed a black body candle on substantially higher volumes. This is negative and indicates that the bias has shifted towards the sell side of the market. Further, the index has crossed below the 5 days moving average. Moreover, the velocity parameters which were positively trended have now turned neutral. All these indicate a negative bias However, the index continues to remain above its 15, 25 and 200 days moving averages and all the averages are rising. This is positive. Investors are advised to hold long positions but with a strict stop loss at the 15-day average at the 5716 point’s level.
Work with strict stop losses on all positions.
