Pivot point = 7821 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day).
Support (1) = 7787.
Support (2) = 7732.
Resistance (1) = 7877.
Resistance (2) = 7910.
Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a long white body candle. Further, the index has crossed above its 5 day moving average. Moreover, the velocity parameters which were negatively trended are now turning neutral. All these indicate a 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.
However, the index is still below its 15, 25 and 200 day moving averages and all the three averages are declining and also negatively trended. This is negative. As such these are mixed signals. Investors are advised to adopt a wait and watch policy, until a clear reversal signal is visible.
