Sensex extends losses, down 99 points in early trade

Mumbai, Dec 8: The benchmark BSE Sensex was down by 99 points in early trade on Tuesday on sustained capital outflows amid a weak trend in global markets.

The 30-share index dropped 98.89 points or 0.38 per cent at 25,431.22 with metal, consumer durables, healthcare, PSU, capital goods and banking sector stocks, leading the slide.

The gauge had cumulatively lost 639.30 points in the last four sessions.

In a similar fashion, the broad-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty slipped by 31.30 points 0.40 per cent to 7,734.10.

Brokers said sentiment took a hit on sustained foreign fund outflows and a weak trend in other Asian markets, tracking overnight losses in the US after oil sank to a seven-year low as OPEC decided not to slash output.
