Outlook for a fortnight
For a fortnightly view, candlestick patterns have always been the strongest indicator for safe signals. In the bullish sentiment, the patterns are Morning Star, Bullish Engulfing and Doji with an immediate positive candle. These serve as indicators for the upward trend.
Similarly, Evening Star, Bearish Engulfing and spinning top with a negative candle show a short selling reversal. In these patterns, volumes yield a significant role in providing a firm confirmation. A large volume surge during a breakout suggests a positive outlook. CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART
Outlook for a week
A short-term trade may be considered on various factors such as technical indicators. Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) or price indicators like support and resistance fall under this category of deciphering a weekly trend. The trend line also assists in developing a breakout strategy. The underlying strength needs to be gauged to assess the overall broader trend.
Besides knowing the daily formation, an analysis of intra-day momentum also guides in acknowledging the turnaround or break out in stock. Usually, 15 minutes to an hour chart assist in decoding a fair outlook. In the intra-day study, one can focus on volumes, overbought and oversold conditions and even moving averages like 8-DMA, 21-DMA and 37-DMA. CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART
Other aspects of trading
Besides the above-mentioned indicators, chart patterns can be used in synergies with their applied price targets. Chart patterns like Head and Shoulder, Double Top, Flags, Triple bottom, Symmetrical Triangle, Ascending Triangle, and Descending Triangle also help in determining the trend.
If the larger aspect of trading is associated with identifying a trend, then one should focus on the breakout or breakdown patterns. Usually, traders or investors want to move with a trend and achieve gains with limited risk. However, if one is unable to determine the trend reversal, then the risk factor can turn into an unbearable loss.
