Short-covering in recently beaten down stocks by speculators and a mixed trend on other Asian bourses, tracking weekend gains in the U.S. markets, influenced trading sentiment, brokers said. Meanwhile, the Nifty was trading higher by 52.40 points or 0.54% at 9,763.20 with 41 components gaining. The 50-stocks index has crucial support placed around the level of 9,702 and the next important support stands at the level of 9,650.
