The Nifty 50 traded near 10,900. Asian stocks began the week on a cautious note after soft economic data from China and Europe added to evidence of cooling global growth.

Oil prices climbed after US drilling activity fell to its lowest level in about two months.

Indian benchmark indices advanced for the fifth session on Monday led by gains in auto, banks and power stocks. The rupee strengthened marginally against the US dollar after India’s trade deficit narrowed from a month ago due to sharp fall in gold imports.
