Nifty 50 closed higher with the Indian volatility index, India VIX rising above 24.5%. Asian indices closed higher, tracking the US indices which also closed sharply higher on Friday but still posted weekly losses. The tech-heavy NASDAQ 100 closed 3.7% higher on Friday but lost over 2.4% last week.

European stock markets trade lower, as investors remain cautious over the outlook for global economic growth amid prevailing geopolitical tensions.
