Sensex posts biggest one-day fall in 1 week as crude cracks | Reuters

MUMBAI Indian stocks ended lower for a second straight week and fell over 1 percent on Friday, posting their biggest one-day percentage fall in over a week, in a late sell-off triggered by crude oil prices that fell below $30 a barrel.

The broader Nifty ended 1.31 percent lower, its biggest single-day loss since Jan. 7. The index has lost 2.15 percent for the week.

The benchmark Sensex ended 1.28 percent lower, shedding 1.92 percent during the week.
