The benchmark Sensex opened lower by over 69 points today on profit-selling by funds amid weak global trends.

The Bombay Stock Exchange barometer fell by 69.89 points to 8,931.86 in the first five minutes of trading. The 30-share index had closed higher by 25.07 points on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the wide-based National Stock Exchange's Nifty fell by 13.45 points to 2,793.70 points.

Marketmen said profit selling at existing higher levels after a weak trend in the US markets last night impacted the trading sentiments.
