Market benchmark BSE Sensex stretched its losses for the second day today, shedding over 70 points in early trade on sustained selling by investors amid dip in exports.
Besides, a weak trend at other Asian bourses as traders await the conclusion of the US Federal Reserve's latest policy meeting, weighed on the trading sentiments here.
The 30-share Sensex fell further by 70.14 points, or 0.28 per cent, to 24,481.03 with healthcare, FMCG, teck, IT, auto, capital goods and power stocks leading the fall.
The gauge lost 253.11 points in the previous session.
The NSE Nifty fell by 13.55 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 7,447.05.
