Indian equity markets closed the Wednesday&’s choppy trading session with marginal declines amid profit booking at higher levels.

The Sensex at the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) provisionally ended 52 points down at 26118 while the Nifty at the National Stock Exchange (NSE) ended 24 points lower at 7931.

Keeping aside the losses of the benchmark indices, broader markets ended with marginal gains as BSE MidCap index gained 0.2 per cent while SmallCap index closed almost flat with a positive bias.

In the Sensex-30 pack, Lupin topped in the gainers list with a jump of 3.6 per cent and the State Bank of India became the lead loser with a dip of 1.9 per cent.
