Indian shares are likely to open little changed on Wednesday amid flat trades in Asian markets. Shares in Asia traded near a 3-1/2-month low on lingering concerns over the economic impact of a US-China trade war, although an overnight bounce in US stocks limited losses. Indian benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE’s Nifty 50 snapped a nine-day losing streak and settled over 0.5 percent higher in the previous session. At 07:00 AM, the SGX Nifty was down 14 points, or 0.13 percent, at 11,246.50, indicating a tepid start for the Sensex and the Nifty.
