IANS  |  Mumbai 

Caution ahead of the outcome of ongoing US-trade talks and Q3 corporate earning session kept the major indices in a short range on Tuesday. Sensex and Nifty logged marginal gains during the afternoon session.

The US-trade talks assume special significance as analysts say both sides face a resumption of tariffs in March if they don't strike a deal. The two economic giants agreed on a 90-day trade truce in early December.

Also, Q3 corporate earning session starting this week kept the investors from taking position.

On the domestic front, will meet representatives of Financial Companies (NBFC) on Tuesday pushing the stocks 0.82 per cent higher.

In contrast, consumer durable and power sectors traded lower but the stocks managed to stay in the green.

At 1.55 p.m., the Nifty50 traded at 10,787.40, higher by 15.60 points or 0.14 per cent from the previous close of 10,771.80.

The BSE Sensex, which had opened at 35,964.62, traded at 35,914.38, higher by 64.22 points or 0.18 per cent from its previous close of 35,850.16.

So far, it has touched an intra-day high of 35,968.08 and a low of 35,753.95.
