Benchmark ended flat on Friday, as investors remained cautious after sentiment soured on renewed fears of a trade war after US President Donald Trump proposed more tariffs on China.

The S&P ended at 33,627, up 30 points while the broader Nifty50 index settled at 10,331, up 6 points.

Trump said on Thursday that he had directed US trade officials to identify tariffs on $100 billion worth additional Chinese imports, escalating the dispute between the world’s two largest economies.

Asia ex-Japan slipped 0.13 per cent, while US stock futures fell more than 1 per cent. Global have been volatile this week amid the back-and-forth of the US-China trade conflict.

Back home, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Thursday adopted a remarkably dovish tone, surprising analysts who were expecting the firming up of rates in the medium term, even as one of the six members in the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) voted for a hike in an otherwise status quo policy.

After the first bi-monthly monetary policy for 2018-19, the repo rate remained at 6 per cent. RBI Executive Director Michael Patra voted for a 25 basis points hike, but other five members, including RBI Governor Urjit Patel favoured a pause.

The central bank lowered its inflation projection sharply from previous forecasts, but flagged risks on the upside on the revised numbers. The RBI expects retail inflation in March at 4.5 per cent, down from 5.1 per cent it projected in February.
