The Nifty50 repeated its previous day's trading pattern on Thursday, the expiry day of September futures & options contracts. The index opened sharply higher but after positive trade in the initial period, it extended losses as the day progressed and closed below psychological 11,000 levels.

The index formed a bearish candle again on the daily charts.

The Nifty Bank, Auto, Financial Service, Pharma and Realty indices were down 1-3 percent while the Nifty Midcap index underperformed frontliners, falling 2.3 percent.

The Nifty50 opened higher at 11,079.80 and closed sharply lower at 10,977.55. The index managed to rise up to 11,089.45, the intraday high, in first half of an hour of trade but suddenly wiped out those gains and remained weak for rest of the session to hit day's low of 10,953.35. It closed 76.30 points lower at 10,977.50.

The sentiment continued to be weakened and if that worsens further then it could also break its recent panic low levels, experts said.

"Nifty50 continued to remain under pressure on expiry day as it registered another bearish candle post Tuesday’s strong recovery," Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory,, told Moneycontrol.

In next session he said unless it sustains above 10,950 levels the test of recent panic low of 10,866 looks inevitable. "However, below 10,866 critical support appears to be placed around 10,797 levels breach of which shall strengthen the chances of extending this downswing upto 10,557 levels."

He feels unless this index recovers and closes above 11,145 levels upside momentum shall not be expected. Hence, for time being Mazhar advised traders to refrain from going long and should look to consider fresh shorts below 10,800 levels for a target of 10,557.

The India Volatility Index fell by 2.2 percent to 16.71.
