Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed a small black body candle with a long upper tail has formed a long black body candle. 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 and 25 day’s moving averages and all the three averages are negatively trended. Moreover, the velocity parameters are also negatively trended. The index has also dropped below a major support level at the 4672 point's level. All these indicate the possibility of a further decline unfolding.
Investors are advised to avoid buying at current levels.

Incidentally, since, October 23rd this column had been advising investors to “Avoid Buying”, as we were anticipating a decline. That assessment has proved accurate as the Nifty has lost 424 points since then.

Work with strict stop losses on all positions.
