Tech View :: Key levels to watch on Nifty50

Nifty remained mostly volatile during the day as India awaits the final phase of the general election. The near-term outlook remains positive, with the index staying above the crucial moving averages. Support lies at 22,900, below which the index might slip towards 22,800. On the higher end, bears are active around 23,000-23,050. A decisive move above 23,050 might trigger a stronger rally towards higher levels."

Comment :: What all happened in the markets today?

The bulls are facing stiff resistance at 23,000 levels as investors start booking profit at higher levels to avoid any knee jerk reaction in the market ahead of the election result. Better earnings growth, the expectation of a revival in private capex, and a moderation in FIIs selling intensity are the key positive triggers in the market. The release of India's Q4 GDP and US inflation figures this week will also influence investors to get a direction in the near term.
