Asian stocks finished with gains. Major European benchmarks are trading in positive territory amidst a more-than-expected fall in inflation in the Euro Area. Wall Street Futures however indicate losses on opening.

The Dollar Index remained subdued. Bond yields mostly eased ahead of the monetary policy reviews by major central banks. Crude oil prices dithered as markets waited for the decisions by the Fed as well as OPEC. Gold dropped ahead of the Fed's decision. Cryptocurrencies edged higher.
