Sensex slides further by 149 pts, banking a drag

sensexMumbai: Continuing to move south, the BSE Sensex fell over 149 points and the NSE Nifty broke below the 8,800-mark in early morning trade today amid weak global cues.

Sentiment remained downbeat as investors went about booking profits in recent gainers. The 30-share barometer declined 149.22 points, or 0.52 per cent, to 28,519, with sectoral indices led by realty, banking and auto accounting for much of the losses, falling by up to 0.94 per cent. The index had lost 104.91 points in the previous session on Friday.
