Mumbai: The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) benchmark index Sensex on Monday fell by nearly 90 points in early trade, due to fresh selling by funds in the absence of any positive trigger, amid a mixed trend in Asian markets.

The wide-based National Stock Exchange (NSE) 50-share index Nifty declined by 29.40 points, or 0.56%, to 5,248.80.

Brokers said fresh selling by funds as the market has been lacking any positive factor amid a mixed trend on other Asian bourses, influenced the trading sentiment here.

In the Asian region, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index was down by 0.08%, while Japan’s Nikkei index gained 0.29% in morning trade.
