The markets continued to trade in a negative territory during the afternoon session led by loses in Metal Index followed by Consumer Durables, Healthcare and Realty indices. Tata Steel, Sesa Sterlite, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Oil And Natural Gas Corporation, State Bank of India was among the major losers.

Currency crisis in emerging markets could result in earnings downgrades, analysts say. Higher export realisation due to rupee depreciation may get cancelled due to forex hedges and slowdown in other markets. Tata Steel has surged by almost 3 per cent after the state government has issued orders to restart operations of four captive iron ore mines of Tata Steel following an interim order of the Odisha High Court (HC).
