Mumbai: The benchmark Sensex took a break from its two-day post-Budget rally in late morning trade, slipping 36.35 points amid bouts of profit-booking in key front line shares of consumer durables, auto, IT and FMCG sectors.

Overseas, Asian markets were mixed as investors await the outcome of key US monthly jobs report that will set the tone for the Federal Reserve's policy outlook. China's markets reopened after a week-long break.
