Mumbai: The benchmark BSE Sensex was trading flat, up 12.10 points in late morning trade amid bouts of buying in realty, telecom, IT, utilities, industrial and FMCG sectors ahead of the announcement of key corporate results.

Investors were cautious after Asian markets traded lower following the US administration's protectionist stance on pulling out North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) affecting Wall Street.
