On European front, FTSE 100 dipped 0.27% and CAC 40 fell 0.36%.

The European markets opened weak on the news that Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's may cut France's outlook to negative within next 10 days.

The news triggered the global stock markets, leading to a fall.

On the sectoral front on the BSE, all major sectors dipped in red except FMCG, HealthCare and Auto.

The worst performers over the sectoral front were Realty (2.38%), Oil & Gas (2.07%), Bankex (1.92%), Metal (1.41%) and Consumer Durables (1.41%).
