The India VIX fear indicator decreased 1.6% to 21.5 on Wednesday, suggesting that there is little volatility in the Indian stock market. Given the stable medium-to-long-term outlook for the domestic market, investors' focus has turned from election-related concerns to the fundamentals of stocks.

Trade setup for Thursday

As long as it continues over 22,500, the trend is probably going to continue being strong. With immediate support at 22,600, the index may climb higher in the near future, maybe as high as 22,800. If the index falls below 22,600, it may momentarily go up near 22,500.
