Pivot Point Analysis:
For intra-day traders the support and resistance levels are calculated according to the pivot point theory and are:
Pivot point = 8924 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day).
Support (1) = 8864.
Support (2) = 8813.
Resistance (1) = 8975.
Resistance (2) = 9035.
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, 15, 25 and 200 days moving averages and all the four averages are rising and also positively trended. Further, the velocity parameters too indicate strength. Both these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further upmove unfolding. Investors are advised to hold long positions.
