Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a fourth consecutive and long white body candle on higher volumes. The body of this candle is above and outside the body of the previous candle indicating a range expansion and acceleration. This is positive.
Further, the 5 days moving average has crossed above the 15 and 25 days moving averages in a single day. This is positive and a buy signal. Moreover, the velocity parameters are also positively trended. All these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further up move unfolding.
Incidentally, the index is nearing its 200 days average, which is at the 5688 points level. There is a possibility that the index could face some resistance there. However, if it crosses above it then a further sharp rise can be expected. Investors are advised to hold long positions.
