    The BSE Sensex fell 0.4% on Wednesday, snapping a two-day rally that sent it up more than 3%, with investors wary ahead of quarterly corporate results that will begin next week amid slowing economic growth and high interest rates.

    A series of rate rises since early 2010 to combat inflation, a weak rupee and sluggish consumer spending are likely to weigh on the results of many companies, while concerns remain about the impact of the euro zone debt crisis on the global economy.

    * At 2:00 pm, the partially convertible rupee was at 53.1500/1525 to the dollar, 0.1% stronger than its close on Tuesday.

    * Traders said dollar selling by foreign banks also helped the rupee.

    Bombay Bullion Association President Prithviraj Kothari welcomed the move, saying the government now needed to quickly build more hallmarking centres to keep pace with demand.
