Pivot point = 7988 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day).

Support (2) = 7892.
Resistance (1) = 8027.

Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a third consecutive doji pattern. This indicates that the indecisiveness amongst investors continues. 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 day moving average. Further, the velocity parameters too are turning positive. Both these indicate a positive bias.
But, the index is still below its 15, 25 and 200 day moving averages and all the three averages are declining. This is negative. As such these are mixed signals. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy until a clear pattern emerges.
