MUMBAI, Dec 11 (Reuters) - India's main NSE index edged
lower on Tuesday after earlier hitting a nearly two-year high as
investors booked profits after data showing a continued high
trade deficit renewed concerns about the current account
deficit.
    Export-driven technology shares were among the leading
decliners, with Tata Consultancy Services falling 1.5
percent, while Infosys lost 0.9 percent. 
    The 50-share NSE index provisionally ended down 0.17
percent after earlier hitting its highest since Jan. 7, 2011.
    The BSE index lost 0.12 percent after earlier
hitting its highest since April 27, 2011.
