------------------------------

Sectoral indices are trading mixed with BSE Telecom Index under pressure.

BSE Metal Index is witnessing buying interest, with Hindalco and JSW Steel among the top gainers today.

Moving on, the rupee is currently trading at 74.73 against the US$.

Gold prices are currently trading down by 0.6% at Rs 52,254.

Gold held above US$1,900 an ounce following wild swings as investors weighed the outlook for the metal's record-setting rally, tracking moves in bond yields, a weaker dollar, as well as an uptick in risk appetite.

Spot bullion steadied, while futures dropped after US stocks briefly surpassed their all-time closing high, curbing demand for haven assets.
