The Prabhudas Lilladdher expert maintained that some of the frontline stocks are under sell-off stress and hence investors should remain vigilant about the crucial support of the 50-stock index.

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Vaishali Parekh said, "Nifty has witnessed resistance near the 22,300 levels and with a bearish engulfing pattern visible on the daily chart and some of the select frontline stocks witnessing profit booking, a decisive close below 22,000 zones, shall slightly weaken the bias to slip down till 21,800 (20DMA) which is a strong support zone as of now."

"Bank Nifty also resisted near the 47,400 to 47,500 zone and with some profit booking seen in some of the frontline banking stocks, we can expect a small breather or consolidation in the coming days. Both indices' daily trends have remained positive and will require additional positive upward movement to maintain the trend," said Parekh.
