Mumbai: The benchmark Sensex slipped below the 35,000-mark by dropping over 100 points to 34,911.11 in early trade Monday after banking, metal and auto stocks declined following weak global cues and profit-booking.

The 30-share index fell 100.54 points, or 0.29 percent, to 34,911.11. The gauge had rallied nearly 580 points Friday.

The NSE Nifty, too, was trading 39.80 points, or 0.38 percent, lower at 10,513.20.

Sectoral indices, led by power, metal, banking and auto stocks, were trading in the negative terrain, falling by up to 1.44 percent.

Brokers said sentiments were weak largely in tandem with a negative trend in other Asian markets, tracking losses at the Wall Street, and profit-booking by investors after Friday's rally.

NTPC fell the most by 3.01 percent among Sensex scrips, followed by IndusInd Bank shedding 2.17 percent.
