MUMBAI: Falling for the third straight session, the benchmark BSE Sensex declined by another 84 points in early trade today on persistent capital outflows amidst a weak global trend after the IMF trimmed its growth forecast.

The 30-share barometer, which had lost 358.54 points in  the previous two sessions, fell by 84.16 points, or 0.32 per cent, to trade at fresh two-month low of 26,187.81.

Similarly, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved down by 25.70 points, or 0.32 per cent, to 7,826.70.

Brokers said sentiments have been affected on persistent capital outflows by foreign funds and a weak trend at other Asian markets following a US and European sell-off that came in response to weaker German data and the IMF's decision to cut its growth forecast for the global economy.

Among other Asian markets, Japan's Nikkei was down 1.47 per cent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng shed 0.81 per cent in early trade.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 1.60 per cent down in yesterday's trade.
