Pivot Point Analysis:
For intra-day traders the support and resistance levels are calculated according to the pivot point theory and are:
Pivot point = 6017 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day).

Support (2) = 5934.
Resistance (1) = 6068.
Resistance (2) = 6100.
Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a doji pattern. This indicates indecisiveness amongst investors. The next candle formation will confirm whether the bias is towards the buy or sell side of the market.
However, the index has crossed above its 5 days moving average. Further, the velocity parameters which were negatively trended have now turned neutral. Both these indicate a positive bias.
But the index is still below its 15 and 25 days moving averages and both the three averages are declining. This is negative. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy, until a clear reversal signal is visible.
