See how 18,245 is being protected in the hourly chart for FIN NIFTY. It was the spot where FIN NIFTY took a bounce on 7th February, the first expiry of February. Let us watch this level.
The US markets fell heavily yesterday. It was the largest down-move of the year and the main reason could be the rise in the Services PMI.

This led to the fall.
