Suspicious Results from NASDAQ on Tuesday, Tentative Trading Prevails

Global equities have turned cautious as the U.S Federal Reserve’s rate decision is waited on. Asian markets reversed from their highs and finished with declines, turning positive trading for the Hang Seng into a losing session.

Thus, the rhetoric which is delivered from Chairman Jay Powell during his question and answer session with the media will become must-watch television for investors. The U.K has released its Average Hourly Earnings statistics and the inflation numbers were higher than expected, and the Pound reacted with a short-term gain versus the U.S Dollar.
