Analysis of Trend

Trend analysis is a technical analysis method that helps to predict future movement based on the current ongoing trend data. Looking at the daily charts, the trend of the NEPSE index is still in a downtrend.

Candlestick Charting and Volume

This week's market movement has formed a bearish long candle with a lower shadow on the weekly candlestick chart. A bearish candlestick indicates that the bears had control and drove the Index down.

Long-legged doji candle has formed on Friday on a daily chart. A part of the doji family, a long-legged doji candlestick is formed when the opening and closing prices are almost the same. A long-legged doji has long wicks on both sides, up and down, and a small body.

The highest intraday gain was 39.93 points on Tuesday with a turnover of Rs 1.25 Arba.


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 26.08. Meanwhile, the RSI reading on the weekly chart is 25.62. 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 -95.26. The MACD line is below the signal line.

Price Action

The index followed the trend and continuously fell this week. The last candle formed this week is a long-legged doji. A long-legged doji candlestick pattern is one such pattern that affirms the market has entered a period of indecision with no viable direction in price action.

1,800 to 1,670 zone may act as the nearest support.
