Pivot Point Analysis:
For intra-day traders the support and resistance levels are calculated according to the pivot point theory and are:
Pivot point = 7879 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day).

Support (2) = 7589.
Resistance (1) = 7990.
Resistance (2) = 8170.
Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed a doji pattern has formed a long black body candle on substantially higher volumes. In fact yesterday’s candle is almost like a Black Marubozu candle. (A Black Marubozu forms when the open equals the high and the close equals the low). The body of this candle is below and outside the body of the previous black body candle. This is negative.
Further, the index is below its 5, 15, 25 and 200 day moving averages and all the four averages are declining. The velocity parameters too indicate weakness. All these indicate a negative bias and the possibility of a further decline unfolding. Investors are advised to avoid buying at present levels.
