Tech View :: 'Nifty looking to move towards 23,800'

Following a strong start, the Nifty remained within a range as the index formed another day of muted movement on the daily chart. For the last few days, Nifty has been moving sideways on an intraday basis, but eventually, it has moved up above 23,500. The trend looks positive from here, with support placed at 23,300. A fall below 23,300 might induce selling pressure. On the higher end, the index might move towards 23,800.
