New Delhi, Feb 18 (PTI) Nickel prices rose 0.48 per cent to Rs 1,368.30 per kg in the futures trade on Thursday, as speculators built fresh positions on a rising demand from alloy makers in the spot market.

On the Multi Commodity Exchange, nickel contracts for the February delivery gained Rs 6.60, or 0.48 per cent, to Rs 1,368.30 per kg in a business turnover of 2,054 lots.
