Unveiling intraday trading tips for Friday session, Vaishali Parekh of Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Nifty tanked with heavy profit booking witnessed during the intraday session on the back of negative cues breaching below the 18,000 zone and weakening the bias almost coming close to the crucial support zone of 17,800 levels.
