Both the Sensex and Nifty crept up on Wednesday, led by drug maker Aurobindo Pharma Ltd after stellar quarterly results, but sentiment remained edgy as investors awaited further clues on whether the Federal Reserve will raise US interest rates this year.

Investors' attention now is on Fed Chair Janet Yellen's speech at the annual central bank symposium in Jackson Hole on Friday. They still doubt the stars will align for a hike anytime soon, so a hawkish tone from Yellen would challenge that view.

Reflecting the caution, Asian stocks consolidated recent gains on Wednesday, while oil prices slid after a surprise buildup in US crude stocks.

Sentiment was also muted ahead of the expiry of the derivative contracts on Thursday.

"If there is some indication that the US economy is in good shape and recovery is on track, then there could be some impact on Indian stocks but the market isn't expecting any immediate hike in US interest rates because of global economic uncertainty," said UR Bhat, managing director of Dalton Capital, a unit of UK investment management firm Dalton Strategic Partnership.

Aurobindo Pharma rose as much as 5.6 percent after the company on Tuesday reported a 24 percent rise in its June-quarter consolidated profit, boosted by higher sales.

Welspun India plunged about 10 percent and headed for its third straight fall, as the fallout from Target Corp's decision to terminate business with the firm for passing off cheap sheets as premium Egyptian cotton escalated.

Welspun India's shares, which had plunged 20 percent for a second day on Tuesday, continues its steep descent and were down by almost 10%. Welspun, one of the world's largest textile manufacturers, is facing the fallout from Target Corp's decision to terminate business with the firm for passing off cheap sheets as premium Egyptian cotton escalated. Target had said on Friday that it was severing ties with Welspun after its extensive investigation had confirmed that the Indian company, which purportedly used Egyptian cottons to make sheets and pillowcases sold to the retailer, substituted non-Egyptian cotton instead.

Idea Cellular falls, denies Vodafone merger talks report

Idea Cellular's shares down as much as 4 pct to 97 rupees after rallying on Tuesday on a media report that it was in merger talks.

India's No. 3 mobile phone carrier strongly denied on Tuesday a news report that it was in exploratory talks about a merger with larger rival Vodafone India.

Stock rose as much as about 8 pct to 102 rupees, highest in more than two weeks on Tuesday.

Nearly 3 mln shares traded in the first 15 mins of trade, more than a quarter of their 30-day avg volume.

Stock had fallen more than a third this year as of Monday's close.

Buy Infosys and add at declines for medium term. Some upside in the near term is not ruled out.

The Indian stock market opened on a cautious note Wednesday, with investors looking ahead to Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, due later this week.

Wall Street ended marginally up overnight amid mixed economic data and Asian markets are mostly subdued today. Meanwhile, oil prices declined yesterday on the back of data showing a build-up in crude inventories and on news about a ballistic missile launch by North Korea.

The BSE benchmark Sensex, which advanced to 28,108.39, is currently at 28,039.73, up 49.52 points or 0.2% from its previous close. The Nifty50 of the National Stock Exchange is up 11.60 points or 0.13% at 8644.20, after rising to a high of 8661.05 earlier.
