Counter-intuitively, US stocks rallied on the back of the central bank’s plans, as traders welcomed the clarity of the statement.
Chinese stocks were flat despite the gains on Wall Street due to worries that Washington might blacklist more Chinese companies.
Today, it is Europe’s turn to outline it’s monetary policy plans, with the Bank of England and ECB making rate decisions and policy statements.
