Candlestick Charting and Volume
Last week's market movement has formed a bearish marubozu candle on the weekly candlestick chart. Bearish marubozu candlestick indicates that the bears had control and drove the Index down. The week before that it made a doji candle.
The highest intraday loss was 50.34 points on Monday with a turnover of Rs 1.33 Arba.
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 25.38. Meanwhile, the RSI reading on the weekly chart is 31.28. 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 -70.80. The MACD line is below the signal line.
The index followed the trend and continuously fall this week. A bearish marubozu pattern formed on the weekly candlestick chart. Bearish marubozu candles indicate that sellers had control from start to finish and is a very bearish sign’
1,985 to 1,930 zone may act as the nearest support.
