Tech View :: 'Decisive break above 23,500 to take Nifty to 23,800'

Nifty remained sideways following a gap-up start. The index has been consistently flat for the last four days, indicating a pause before a sharp move. The direction of this move is not yet known, at least not before any directional breakout.

From here, a decisive move above 23,500 might lead to the covering of call writing, which could take the index higher towards 23,800. On the lower end, support is placed at 23,300, below which the index might weaken.
