Outlook for Today: On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed four consecutive black body candles has formed a doji pattern. This indicates indecisiveness amongst market men. The next candle formation will confirm whether the bias is towards the buy or sell side of the market. However, the index is below its 5, 15 and 25 days averages. Further, the velocity parameters are also negatively trended. Both these indicate the possibility of a decline unfolding. Investors are advised to avoid buying at current levels. Work with strict stop losses on all positions.
