Investors globally were rejoiced after the US Federal Reserve spurred hopes of a rate cut as soon as July, even though it left interest rates unchanged. The Fed news came in after European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi said in his latest speech said that the European Central Bank could cut interest rates again or provide further asset purchases, if inflation does not reach its target.

    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%.
