COLOMBO, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks slipped for a third straight session on Wednesday, dragged down by shares of large caps such as Ceylon Tobacco Co PLC, a day after the central bank held key monetary policy rates steady.

Sri Lanka's central bank on Tuesday kept key policy rates unchanged and said the country has the potential to achieve its targeted 7.5 economic growth this year.

The main share index edged down 0.08 percent, or 4.52 points, to close at 5,700.74, its lowest close since Sept. 10.

Brokers said the market has been concerned about the outlook for interest rates after an expensive borrowing by state-owned National Savings Bank.

Large cap companies suffered, with Ceylon Tobacco Co shares ending 3 percent down, while that of Nestle Lanka PLC dropping 1.25 percent.

Wednesday's turnover was 700.1 million rupees ($5.29 million), less than this year's daily average of about 882 million rupees.

Foreign investors were net buyers of 361.5 million rupees worth of shares on Wednesday, extending net foreign inflows in stocks so far this year to 18.99 billion rupees.

The stock and foreign exchange markets will be closed on Thursday for a Buddhist holiday.
