Outlook for Today:
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 200 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. Moreover, the velocity parameters continue to indicate strength. All these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further up move unfolding. Investors are advised to hold long positions.
