Concerns over depreciating rupee and rising geopolitical tensions continued to keep investors on the edge as benchmark stock indices continued their freefall for the second straight day on September 17.

Global crude oil prices eased slightly but remained on the elevated levels while the threat of retaliation over the attacks on Saudi oil facilities kept investors on tenterhooks.

The Indian rupee weakened by another 18 paise to settle at 71.78 against the US dollar as investors fretted over higher crude oil prices.

Close

Sensex closed the day 642 points lower at 36,481.09 while Nifty closed 186 points or 1.69 percent lower at 10,817.60. Among the 50 stocks in the Nifty index, 44 incurred losses.

Both Nifty and Nifty Bank turned negative for the calendar 2019. Nifty Bank index closed 723 points or 2.60 percent down at 27,131.75.

India VIX climbed 7.12 percent to 16.02 level.

Nifty formed a bearish belt hold candle on the daily chart and has also broken its rising support trend line by connecting swing lows of 10,637, 10,746 then 10,880 levels.

Experts feel the sentiments are expected to remain weak and if index remains below 10,880 levels then the weakness could continue in coming sessions.

"The benchmark index is now set to test the August low of 10,637 with the potential to tumble towards 10,455 in the short term. Hence any bounce towards 10,880-10,900 can be taken as an opportunity to initiate a fresh short position," said Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.
