Updated : 2019-06-25 09:24:58

Indian shares are likely to open on a cautious note on Tuesday in line with global markets as investors await US-China trade talks at the G20 meeting later this week. Rising geopolitical tensions between the US and Iran have also made investor cautious. US President Donald Trump on Monday targeted Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other top Iranian officials with sanctions. Indian benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE’s Nifty 50 ended marginally lower in the previous session dragged by metal and auto stocks. At 7.35 AM, the SGX Nifty futures traded only 12 points, or 0.10 percent, higher at 11,728, pointing to a muted start for the Sensex and the Nifty 50.
