Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed three consecutive doji patterns has formed a long white body candle. In fact, yesterday's candle is almost like a white body Marubozu candle. (A White Marubozu forms when the open equals the low and the close equals the high). This is positive and indicates that the bias has shifted towards the buy side of the market. Further, the index has risen above its 15 days moving average, confirming a bottoming out pattern. The index is now above its 5 and 15 days moving averages. Moreover, the velocity parameters are also positively trended. All these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further up move unfolding.
Technically, since the downwards risk seems to have reduced, Investors may consider buying in small quantities in shares that are fundamentally sound and have a long- term potential.
