Benchmark Sensex ended marginally lower in volatile trade on Wednesday after cautious investors trimmed their portfolios ahead of corporate results despite firm global cues. Profit-booking in auto, IT, oil and gas, teck and healthcare stocks dragged down the index. The Sensex opened a shade higher at 33,929.61 and advanced to 33,998.37, before falling to a low of 33,765.43. It recovered some lost ground on value-buying and finally ended the day at 33,793.38, down 18.88 points, or 0.06 per cent. The gauge had lost 244.57 points in the previous two sessions.
