Commenting upon the stock market trends Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical share market analyst said, "Nifty is facing strong resistance at 12,300 mark. However, it has strong support at 12,050 also. So, I would advise stock market investors to avoid taking any position in 12,200 to 12,300 range.
