Indian shares ended lower for a third straight session today as political uncertainties in the United States and slow global economic growth dampened investor appetite.

The broader NSE Nifty closed 0.84 per cent lower at 10,663.50, while the benchmark BSE Sensex ended down 0.76 per cent at 35,470.15. Both indexes posted their worst closing levels since Dec. 11.

Financial stocks were the biggest drag, with Housing Development Finance Corp and HDFC Bank Ltd closing down 2.2 per cent and 1.3 per cent, respectively.
