After a tumultuous session on March 26, the market snapped a three-day winning streak and finished negative, with the Nifty hanging around 22,000 due to selling in the media, banking, and IT sectors.

The Nifty was down 92.10 points, or 0.42 percent, at 22,004.70, and the Sensex was down 361.64 points, or 0.5 percent, at 72,470.30, at the closing.
