Sensex and Nifty fall; post first weekly loss in five | Reuters

Indian shares fell on Friday, posting their first weekly loss in five, as investors braced for yet another weak quarter of earnings and after a torrid session in Asia following tepid Japan business sentiment data.

The broader Nifty fell 0.33 percent to end at 7,713.05, while the benchmark Sensex dropped 0.28 percent to close at 25,269.64, retreating from a nearly three-month high hit on Thursday.

The Sensex fell 0.27 percent for the week, after four straight weekly gains, while the Nifty eased 0.04 percent.
