BSE Sensex falls below 19,500-level, down 136 points
Mumbai: The BSE benchmark index Sensex on Thursday declined over 136 points in early trade on profit-booking by speculators, amid a weak trend in the global markets.

The 30-share barometer, which had gained 22.44 points in yesterday's session, fell by 136.61 points, or 0.70 percent, to 19,431.61 with all the sectoral indices, led by realty and metal, trading in negative zone with losses up to 1.07 percent.

On similar lines, the wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty declined by 45.25 points, or 0.76 percent, to 5,878.60.

Brokers said besides booking of profit by participants at prevailing levels and deprecating rupee against the dollar, weakening trend on Asian bourses following overnight losses on the US market on the back of weak economic data, dampened the sentiment here.

In the Asian region, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index fell by 0.88 percent, while Japan's Nikkei Index edged lower by 0.45 percent. The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 1.43 percent lower yesterday.
