Vaishali Parekh, Vice President – Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd, said, “Nifty index, after witnessing a double top formation near the 22800 zone, has slipped quite significantly with profit booking eroding the gains and currently has breached below the important 100-period MA at the 22000 level with bias and sentiment maintained with a cautious approach and has the next significant support near the 21750 level.”
