Indian benchmark indices ended the June F&O expiry flat on Thursday as gains in auto and realty sectors were capped by losses in IT and metal space. The sentiment was also dampened on renewed worries of a trade dispute with the United States after Trump called out India’s move to raise tariffs on US goods.
Meanwhile, Asian markets remained upbeat on hopes of a tentative trade truce between the United States and China. US President Donald Trump is expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday in the G20 summit in Osaka.
