Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed a doji pattern (indicating indecisiveness amongst investors) has formed a long white body candle on substantially higher volumes. 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). Moreover, the body of this candle is above and outside the body of the previous candle indicating a range expansion and acceleration. This is positive and indicates that the bias has shifted towards the buy side of the market. Further, the index has crossed above its 5 and 15 days moving averages. The index is now above its 5, 15, 25 and 200 days moving averages. All these indicate a positive bias.
However, the 5 days moving average is below the 15 days moving average. Further, the velocity parameters are negatively trended. Both these indicate a negative bias. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy, until a clearer signal emerges.
