BSE Sensex Falls on Weak Global Shares; Blue Chips Hit
January 3, 2014 8:16 PM EST
The BSE Sensex falls, heading for a third consecutive declining session. Losses tracking lower Asian shares after a sudden reversal in some very popular, and thus crowded, trades sparked a bout of global risk aversion.

The BSE Sensex was trading down 123 points while the Nifty fell 39 points as of 12.42 pm.
However, overseas investors are buyers for a second consecutive day. They bought a net 6.74 billion rupees in stocks on Thursday, provisional exchange data shows, though Indian shares fell the most in nearly 1-1/2 months.
