According to pivot charts, the key support level for the index is placed at 10,724.57, followed by 10,651.23.
A strong wave of selloff enveloped the Indian equity market on September 3, dragging key indices Sensex and Nifty down by over 2 percent.
Investor sentiment received a blow after official data on August 30 showed India's gross domestic product (GDP) slowing to 5 percent in April-June 2019. The GDP growth was at 8 percent in the same quarter of 2018-19.
Besides, an alarming fall in auto sales numbers in August aggravated worries.
Other than worrisome macroeconomic indicators, the rupee's fall against the dollar, weak global sentiment and sustained capital outflow of foreign funds continued weighing on market sentiment.
Sensex closed with a strong loss of 770 points, or 2.06 percent, at 36,562.91, with only two stocks - Tech Mahindra (up 1.24 percent) and HCL Technologies (up 0.62 percent) in the green.
Nifty50 finished 225 points, or 2.04 percent down at 10,797.90, with 48 stocks in the red.
Nifty broke multiple support levels on intraday charts and closed below 10,800. The index is trading below its crucial short-term moving averages such as 20-day moving average (DMA), 5-day exponential moving (EMA), and 13-day EMA, which is not a positive sign.
"Going ahead, 10,775 will be crucial for any upmove to be seen in the next couple of days. However, if Nifty trades below 10,775 consistently then it can approach the previous panic low of 10,640," said Gaurav Bissa, AVP Derivatives & Technicals, LKP Securities.
