Mumbai: Benchmark Sensex slipped 206 points on Wednesday to end at 32,969 on the last trading session of 2017-18, finishing the fiscal with a gain of 11.30 percent. Besides weak global cues, squaring-up of bets by participants due to end of March month expiry in the derivatives segment halted its two-session winning run, brokers said.

The broader 50-share index Nifty also ended 70 points lower at 10,113.70.
