Global markets were weak today as a rise in United States bond yields to 3 per cent and warnings from bellwether United States companies of higher costs drove fears that corporate earnings growth may peak soon.

However, heavy selling pressure in metals, IT and consumer durables stocks, along with outflow of foreign funds and higher crude oil prices, trimmed some gains of the benchmark indices, market observers said.

The barometer 30-scrip Sensitive index (Sensex) of the BSE, which opened at 34,493.69 points, traded at 34,425.68 points - up 10.10 points or 0.03 per cent from its previous session's close.

Indian shares were fluctuating in early trade on Monday, tracking muted cues from other Asian markets as investors kept a wary eye on U.S. bond yields and digested U.S. President Donald Trump's comments that the North Korean nuclear crisis was a long way from being resolved.
