Hit by profit-booking at two-year high levels, the BSE benchmark Sensex on Tuesday closed below the 20,000-mark by losing over 120 points and the NSE Nifty slipped below the 6,100-level amid mixed global cues.

The Sensex, which had gained 284 points in last three trading sessions, commenced the day higher at 20,156.86 before ending with a loss of 120.25 points, or 0.60 per cent, at 19,981.57. The broader Nifty of the NSE also fell back by 33.80 points or 0.56 per cent to 6,048.50.

After logging a three-month high of 53.38, the rupee erased initial gains to close four paise down at 53.81 against US dollar following weakness in local stocks and demand for the currency.
