Mumbai: The Sensex fell for fourth straight session and closed over 64 points down today hurt by losses in ICICI Bank, Infosys and RIL shares as investors continued to adopt a cautious stance ahead of quarterly earnings.

Data showing the country's service sector output again falling in December and negative cues from global markets also affected the domestic sentiment, traders said.

However, midcap and smallcap shares continued to outshine its larger peers.

The 30-share Sensex fell 64.03 points, or 0.31 per cent, to 20,787.30 as 21 constituents ended in the red. Intra-day, it had touched the low of 20,721.98. Tata Power, SBI and Hero MotoCorp were among the biggest losers.

The BSE benchmark has now lost over 383 points in this calendar year and is yet to close on a positive note so far.

The 50-share NSE index Nifty closed down 19.70 points, or 0.32 per cent, to end at 6,191.45. However, SX40 index of MCX Stock Exchange ended 6.29 points up at 12,390.96.
