Both Sensex and Nifty were trading at a new life time high.

"However, global cues were mixed, following soft NFP figure as well as upcoming United Kingdom elections", James added.

At 10.45 a.m., the 30-share BSE index Sensex was up 4.67 points or 0.01 per cent at 31,277.96 and the 50-share NSE index Nifty was up 12.15 points or 0.13 per cent at 9,665.65.

Muted global cues and caution ahead of RBI's monetary policy review due this week served to limit overall gains to some extent.

Healthy buying was witnessed in consumer durables, capital goods and banking stocks.
