The index touched an intraday low of 10,558 before closing the day at 10,614.35, down 18.95 points.
The Nifty also witnessed a sharp recovery post 1pm; the index still closed in red but above its opening levels which made a bullish candle on the daily charts even though the Nifty closed nearly 19 points lower.
Technical chartists advise investors to remain cautious ahead of the expiry and wait for the index to close above 10,700-10,717 levels for the momentum to continue. However, a breach of 10,550 on the downside could take Nifty towards 10,480 levels, suggest experts.
