Outlook for Today:
As indicated in our previous few reports ‘hold with a stop loss at the 15 day moving average’, the markets bounced back into positive terrain after witnessing a few bouts of profit booking and thus establishing the strength of the 15 day moving average. On Japanese candlestick patterns the index has formed a long white body candle In fact, yesterday's candle is almost like a white body Marubozu candle. (A White Marubozu forms when the open equals the low and the close equals the high). This is positive. Further, the index has crossed above the 5 day’s moving average. The index is now above the 5, 15, 25 and 200 day’s moving averages and all the four averages are rising and also positively trended. Moreover, a bullish hook formation is visible on the 5 day’s moving average. The velocity parameters which were negatively trended have now turned neutral. All these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further up move unfolding. Investors are advised to hold long positions.
