Mumbai, July 4 (IANS) Indian equity markets pared gains to provisionally close on a flat-to-negative note on Tuesday, as investors booked profits.

Broadly negative global cues and selling pressure in automobile, healthcare and FMCG stocks dampened investors’ sentiments.

The wider Nifty of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) inched lower by 1.70 points or 0.02 per cent to provisionally close at 9,613.30 points (at 3.30 p.m.).

The 30-scrip Sensitive Index (Sensex) of the BSE, which opened at 31,331.21 points, closed at 31,209.79 points — down 11.83 points, or 0.04 per cent, from its previous close at 31,221.62.

The Sensex touched a high of 31,353.46 points and a low of 31,166.37 during intra-day trade.

The BSE market breadth was slightly bullish — 1,339 advances and 1,320 declines.
