Fundamentals

Economy: European equities are tracking a solid performance on Asian bourses as investors count on the Fed to strike a dovish tone regarding rising interest rates whilst also signalling the end of its bond-buying programme as its two-day policy meeting draws to a close. Expectations are that waning global growth prospects and deflationary risks posed by falling energy prices will bolster the Fed’s pledge to keep rates at historic lows for the foreseeable future. Investor optimism over the outcome of the Fed meeting is being illustrated by a 0.01% fall in benchmark Treasury yields which indicates markets are not expecting a rate hike anytime soon.
