    we are getting nifty advance decline chart in your site. How we will get only nifty 50 stocks advance decline chart? whether that chart will be able to catch nifty movement for intraday trading?

    • Rajandran R August 20, 2012, 10:38 am


      It is just a breadth indicator showing how worst or best the market is performing and its nothing to do about intraday trading.
