Sensex falls for third consecutive day | Reuters

India's stock markets ended 1.3 percent lower on Wednesday, their third session of falls, as global markets slumped after a decline in crude prices.

The broader Nifty ended 1.26 percent lower, while the benchmark BSE Sensex lost 1.29 percent.

Asian shares tumbled as oil prices dropped for a third day, prompting investors to seek shelter in safe-haven assets and lifting bonds and gold to multi-month highs.
