Comment :: 'Buy dip around 22,750-22,850 in Nifty'

It's common to see a pause after a strong upward move, and traders should view any dip around 22,750-22,850 in Nifty as a buying opportunity.

While key sectors are contributing to the upward movement, we are now seeing more selective participation. Therefore, it is advisable to focus on stock selection, with a preference for large-cap and large mid-cap stocks.
