Benchmark index slipped 9.96 points after breaking the near term support level of 4625 yesterday (Tuesday).”

“The modest weakness was seen today as investors cashed in on some of the recent strengths in the market as weak earnings announcement continued to send negative vibe in market. However, banking stocks capped the volatile day at the end of the session,” the stockbroker added.
