  • Fed expected to push ahead with rate hike plan
    The Federal Reserve is expected on Wednesday to point to a growing U.S. economy and stronger job market as it sets the stage for a possible interest rate hike in September. The U.S. central bank is scheduled to issue its latest policy statement at 2 p.m. EDT following a two-day meeting, spelling out how policymakers feel the economy has progressed since they last met in June. Earlier this year the Fed embraced a meeting-by-meeting approach on the timing of what will be its first rate hike since June 2006, making such a decision solely dependent on incoming economic data.

The steadier tone was enough to lift Australia's main index (.AXJO) 0.9 percent, while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.4 percent.
