The market broke its recent range on downside Wednesday as concerns raised over FIIs inflow after Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen hinted rate hike next month. Disappointing quarterly earnings by Tata Motors and Sun Pharma also spoiled sentiment.

The 30-share BSE Sensex fell 183.75 points to 28155.56 and the 50-share NSE Nifty lost 67.60 points to 8724.70 despite positive global cues.

Markets may see further decline ahead but the downside seems capped, Jayant Manglik of Religare Securities said.

He further said traders should maintain extra caution in midcap and smallcap space as they react strongly during the corrective phase. On the other hand, he feels it's an opportunity for those who were waiting some correction to enter as the overall trend is still up.

Meanwhile potential comeback of El Nino also cast a cloud on agri output, and the markets would now look forward to the GST meet on February 18 closely, Anand James of Geojit Financial Services said.
