MARKET EYE-Nifty slips below 6,000; FMCG stocks drag

* The BSE index falls 0.64 percent, while the 50-share
NSE index is down 0.59 percent, after earlier slipping
below the psychologically important 6,000 level.
* Profit-booking seen in stocks after the BSE index 
added 2.4 percent in January to post its third-straight monthly
gain.
* ITC is down 0.2 percent while Hindustan Unilever
 falls 2 percent after Morgan Stanley reduced the
weightage of consumer staples stocks in its Indian model
portfolio. 
* Bharti Airtel Ltd shares down 2 percent, having
earlier fallen as much as 3.8 percent, after October-December
profit missed estimates by a wide margin.
