Mumbai: The Sensex edged lower on Tuesday after earlier hitting a nearly two-year high as investors booked profits after data showing a continued high trade deficit renewed concerns about the current account deficit.
Export-driven technology shares were among the leading decliners, with Tata Consultancy Services Ltd falling 1.28%, while Infosys Ltd lost 0.9%.
The Nifty provisionally ended down 0.17% after earlier hitting its highest since January 7, 2011.
