BENGALURU, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Indian shares are likely to open little changed on Wednesday as fresh economic data spurred concerns around U.S. interest rates and weighed on sentiment, sending Asian shares lower.

India's GIFT Nifty was down 0.08% at 19,435.50 points at 7:54 a.m. IST on the NSE International Exchange.

Wall Street equities fell after data showed an unexpected rise in job openings in August, indicating a still-tight labour market and heightening the possibility of a prolonged high interest regime. Asian stocks, meanwhile, hit a 11-month low.

The Nifty 50 closed lower on Tuesday, dragged by auto stocks on mixed sales data in September.

Analysts said that sentiment remained dented across global markets on rate concerns and expected weakness in domestic equities to persist.

Foreign institutional investors have been net sellers in each of the last ten sessions, selling shares worth 20.34 billion rupees on Tuesday. Domestic institutional investors bought shares worth 13.61 billion rupees, on a net basis.
