Indian shares are likely to open lower on Wednesday, in line with Asian stocks, on renewed worries over US-China trade war following threats from US President Donald Trump to Beijing.
In global markets, investors also await an expected interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve for the first time since the financial crisis more than a decade ago. The expected easing has supported risk asset prices worldwide.
