Here is a snapshot of the global markets across stocks, currencies, bonds, commodities and cryptocurrencies.

Global equity markets regained momentum ahead of the much-awaited monetary policy pronouncements by the Fed. Despite red-hot inflation, markets are hoping that the Fed would not be more hawkish, to raise rates earlier than March. Equities rebounded despite the simmering Russia-Ukraine tensions. Asian stocks mostly finished in green zone. European stocks are buoyant. American stock futures too are bullish. The Dollar Index increased further. Bond yields mostly hardened, in alignment with the interest rate hike expectations. Crude oil prices continued to move higher as a larger-than-expected depletion in crude inventories in the U.S. exacerbated supply concerns triggered by political tensions in Eastern Europe and Middle East. Gold dropped amidst the Dollar's strength. Cryptocurrencies extended gains.
