Candlestick Charting and Volume

This week's market movement has formed a spinning top candle on the weekly candlestick chart. A spinning top is a candlestick formation that signals indecision regarding the future trend direction. This candlestick formation signals indecisiveness amongst buyers and sellers, as neither of these sides has the upper hand, so this pattern is considered a neutral pattern. Last week's candle was a hammer candle.

Momentum Indicators

The relative strength index (RSI) is a momentum indicator used in technical analysis that measures the magnitude of recent price changes to evaluate overbought or oversold conditions in the price of a stock or index. Traditional interpretation and usage of the RSI are that values of 70 or above indicate that a security is becoming overbought or overvalued and may be primed for a trend reversal or corrective pullback in price. An RSI reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold or undervalued condition.

The RSI reading on the daily timeframe is 49.89. Meanwhile, the RSI reading on the weekly chart is 36.11. No diversion has been seen in the RSI in relation to the index, thus invalidating any attempt toward the prediction of a reversal. Furthermore, the RSI readings in the daily and weekly charts also say very little other than the obvious fact that the sentiment has been pessimistic in the last few weeks.

On the other side of things, the MACD line is still negative, i.e. below zero in the daily timeframe, with the MACD reading at -1.19. The MACD line is above the signal line. This indicates the possibility of bullish movement in near future.

Moving Averages

NEPSE index is below both 5 days Exponential Moving Average (EMA) and 20 days EMA. The index below these moving averages signals bearishness. The 5 days EMA is above the 20 Days EMA with the possibility of the formation of a Dead Crossover pattern. The Dead Cross is a technical pattern indicating the potential for a downtrend.
