TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks were set for a muted open on Wednesday as investors looked ahead to the latest policy announcement from the US Federal Reserve.The FTSE 100 was expected to open unchanged at 7,275.

The Fed is widely expected to stand pat on interest rates, but the central bank may well start winding down its balance sheet.

CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “There’s been a great deal of anticipation about this week’s Federal Reserve rate meeting particularly since the FOMC looks set to pull the trigger on the beginning of the paring down of its $4.5trn balance sheet. This doesn’t appear to be in any doubt, nor does the fact that the bank is expected to keep rates unchanged, given that inflation still remains on the weak side, and the damage impact of hurricanes Harvey and Irma continues to be assessed.
