However, the index has crossed above its 5 day moving average. Further, the velocity parameters which were negatively trended have now turned neutral. Both these indicate a This is positive bias.
Incidentally, these may be the first signs of a bottoming out pattern. A crossover by the index above the 15 days average will confirm the same. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy, until a clear reversal signal is visible..
