Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks were little changed on Wednesday afternoon ahead of a key statement by the Federal Reserve which is expected to provide clues on the next monetary policy move in the world's largest economy. Materials shares were posting the largest gains among top sectors, with DuPont up 4.5 percent at $68.78 after activist investor Nelson Peltz's Trian Fund Management urged the company to separate its high-growth businesses from those with strong cash flows.

US stocks rose on Tuesday and the S&P notched its best performance in a month after a report shifted investor expectations for the Federal Reserve's policy statement due on Wednesday. After a sluggish start to trading, major indexes rallied with participants citing a report in the Wall Street Journal as indicating the Fed could be less hawkish than markets have been expecting, as investors try to divine when the central bank will hike interest rates.
Tokyo stocks closed down 0.14 percent Wednesday as investors retreated to the sidelines ahead of the US Federal Reserve's policy decision. The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange slipped 22.86 points to finish at 15,888.67, while the Topix index of all first-section issues was down 0.45 percent, or 5.90 points, at 1,304.96. Investors are focusing on the conclusion of the US Federal Reserve's meeting later Wednesday, betting that it will opt to avoid being too hawkish on interest rates despite a pick-up in the economy.
Britain's top share index slipped and underperformed gains on rival European bourses on Wednesday, as the uncertainty raised by Scotland's vote on independence pegged back the UK stock market. The bluechip FTSE 100 index closed down by 0.2 percent, or 11.34 points, at 6,780.90 points.
European equities advanced in cautious trading on Wednesday on expectations that the US Federal Reserve may signal after a meeting later in the day that it will continue to keep interest rates low for a longer period. However, British equities underperformed, as investors remained jittery ahead of Scotland's referendum on independence on Thursday. Three opinion polls showed Scottish supporters of staying in the United Kingdom were 4 percentage points ahead of secessionists.
Indian shares rose on Wednesday, recovering from nearly 2-1/2-week lows hit in the previous session, as hopes the US Federal Reserve would keep its stimulus measures boosted exporters such as Infosys Ltd and other bluechips. Shares, along with their Asian counterparts, also benefited after China's central bank injected $81 billion into banks to stimulate the world's second-largest economy.
Taiwan stocks rose 1 percent in midmorning trading on Wednesday, pulled higher by key firms in the technology sector. As of 0145 GMT, the main TAIEX index was up 91.76 points to 9,225.16, ahead of other regional and global bourses, after closing down 0.91 percent on Tuesday. The electronics subindex was up 1.23 percent, leading other subindexes and boosted by smartphone vendor HTC Corp, which climbed 2.76 percent, and Apple Inc camera lens manufacturer Largan Precision Co Ltd , which jumped 2.88 percent.
