Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a third consecutive black body candle. The body of this candle is below and outside the body of the previous black body candle. This is negative.
Further, the index is below its 5, 15 and 25 day moving averages and all the three averages are declining and also negatively trended. Moreover, the 15 day moving average has dropped below the 25 day moving average. The velocity parameters continue to indicate weakness. All these indicate a negative bias and the possibility of a further decline unfolding. Investors are advised to avoid buying at present levels.
