Vaishali Parekh, Vice President – Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher, said that Nifty has witnessed a steady slide for the 4th consecutive session with bias weakening and index currently precariously placed with the significant 50EMA zone lying near 22380 levels.

“The index needs a decisive move past the 22700 zone for the bias to improve. With the election outcome event nearing, high volatility and fluctuations are expected in the coming days,” Parekh added.
