Day before Delhi goes to polls, Sensex loses 133 pts

The benchmark Sensex on Friday extended its losing streak for the sixth session in a row, slipping by 133.06 points and logging its worst week in two months due to poor bluechip earnings coupled with uncertainty in view of Delhi assembly polls.

Sustained foreign capital outflows and mixed global cues also affected trading sentiment, said stock market dealers. Shares of auto, healthcare, banking, power, oil & gas and consumer durable were among the major laggards of the day. The BSE Sensex resumed higher at 28,892.21 and firmed up further to a high of 28,922.85 on initial buying. However, it declined afterwards to 28,647.14 before concluding at 28,717.91, logging a net loss of 133.06 points or 0.46 per cent, from Thursday's close.
On a weekly basis, the Sensex lost 465.04 points. This is its biggest weekly drop since the week ending December 12, 2014 when it had plunged by 1,107.42 points.
