The Sensex and Nifty retreated for the third session on the trot on Friday amid continued weakness in global markets due to rising Covid-19 cases in Europe and uncertainty ahead of US elections.

Asian shares falter again
 
A gauge of Asian shares fell for a third session on Friday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside of Japan was last down 0.3 per cent, on track to end the week 1.3 per cent lower after four straight weeks of gains. The index has risen 3.7 per cent in October so far. Analysts expect this broader outperformance to extend further. ”For a crisis of this scale, Asian equities have performed remarkably well,” Citi analysts wrote in a note.
