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 is above its 5 and 200 day moving averages and both the averages are rising. Further, the velocity parameters too indicate strength. Both these indicate a positive bias.
But, the index iis below its 15 and 25 day moving averages and both the averages are declining. This is negative. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy, until a clearer signal emerges.
