Sensex, Nifty End Lower For Fourth Day Ahead Of Key Data

(RTTNews) - Indian shares fell for a fourth straight session on Tuesday as investors looked forward to the release of retail inflation and industrial output data for directional cues.

Strong cues from Asia and Europe helped to limit the downside to some extent.

The benchmark 30-share BSE Sensex ended the session down 241.41 points or 0.66 percent at 36,153.62, while the broader Nifty index dropped 57.40 points or 0.53 percent to 10,831.40.

ICICI Bank, SBI, HDFC, Hero MotoCorp and Infratel fell 2-3 percent in the Nifty pack while Coal India, NTPC, Sun Pharma, JSW Steel and Zee Entertainment Enterprises climbed 2-4 percent.

Globally, stocks rose across Asia and Europe as another round of U.S.-China trade talks got underway in Beijing and U.S. congressional negotiators reached an agreement in principle to fund the government and avoid another shutdown ahead of a Friday midnight deadline.
