The benchmark BSE Sensex fell over 90 points in opening trade today on selling by foreign funds and retail investors, triggered by a weak trend in the Asian region. The 30-share barometer fell by 90.36 points, or 0.44%, to 20,423.49.

The index had gained 15.60 points in the previous session. Stocks of IT, consumer durables, realty, capital goods and oil and gas sectors led the fall. Similarly, the wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty declined by 26.10 points, or 0.43%, to 6,063.40. Brokers said trading sentiment dampened largely in line with a weak trend in the Asian region following another global sell-off caused by anxieties over emerging markets and further disappointing manufacturing data from China.

In the Asian region, the Japan's Nikkei down 1.24% in early trade today, while Hong Kong markets closed for public holiday. The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.94% lower in Friday's trade.
