    Media reported that the United States has told India it is considering caps on H-1B work visas for nations that force foreign companies to store data locally. The move could have an adverse impact on Indian IT companies in the US. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.

    Overseas, Asian stocks were trading higher Thursday after the US Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged. Meanwhile, on the US-China trade front, hopes in Beijing appear to have risen for a trade deal between the two economic powerhouses. US President Donald Trump and Chinese Xi Jinping are reportedly set to meet at the upcoming G-20 summit in Japan, which will happen next week.

    US stocks closed higher Wednesday after the Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged as widely expected but dropped the reference to patient in its statement to indicate it is ready to make ease monetary policy if needed.

    The Fed said it will closely monitor the economy given increasing uncertainty about government policy though it signaled it may not need to lower rates before 2020. The central bank remained mostly optimistic about the economic outlook, but said inflationary pressures have receded, compelling it to lower its forecast for PCE inflation in 2019 to 1.5% from 1.8%, below its 2% target. At the same time, it left its gross domestic product estimate at 2.1%.
