Support (2) = 8707.

Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a second 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, 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.
