Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a second consecutive doji pattern. This indicates that the indecisiveness amongst investors continues. The next candle formation will confirm whether the bias is towards the buy or sell side of the market.
However, the index is still below its 5, 15 and 25 days moving averages and all the three averages are declining. Further, the velocity parameters too are negatively trended. All these indicate a negative bias. Investors are advised to avoid buying at present levels.
