A mixed trend was prevalent in global markets amid concerns about step interest rate hikes by central banks and the fear of slowing economic growth. The thirty-share index (BSE Sensex) settled at 58803.33 points, up 36.74 points or 0.063 per cent, while the fifty-share index (NSE Nifty 50) quoted at 17539.45 points, down 3.35 points or 0.019 per cent.
