BSE Sensex slips below 25,000-mark, down 33 points; Coal India, Bharti Airtel shares down

BSE Sensex and Nifty struggled for the fifth day in a row...

The benchmark BSE Sensex slipped 33 points to 24,991.69 in early trade today due to persistent selling pressure in IT, tech, consumer durable and healthcare stocks amid foreign capital outflows.

The market sentiment was affected adversely by data showing that foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) were net sellers of Indian stocks on last Friday.

They sold shares worth a net Rs 723.48 crore, says provisional data from the stock exchanges.

The Sensex opened slightly higher at 25,093.16 and moved up further to 25,095.76.
