Market slides for 3rd straight week

The market declined for the third consecutive week as weak global stocks continue to spook investors. A weakening trend in global markets on lingering concerns over the euro zone debt crisis dampened the trading sentiment here. Selling was also triggered by poor Q2 September 2011 corporate earnings. Data showing selling by foreign funds recently also concerned investors.
