Extending its losing streak for fourth consecutive day, the Dalal-Street ended in red on Friday as worries about the health of Europe"s banking system along with lingering disappointment over the Union Budget spooked investors, prompting them to sell off equity. Investors turned cautious after worries emerged overnight about the financial stability of one of Portugal's largest financial firms, Espirito Santo International, which spread to the European stock and bond markets. The market sentiment was also dented by Jaitley"s maiden budget speech, which lacked major announcements.
