US EQUITIES SURGE ON DOVISH FED; NIFTY TO GIVE 34-DMA TEST YET AGAIN
WORLD MARKETS                             
US indices climbed between 0.9%-1.3%, cheering the Federal Reserve’s statement that indicated a rate hike would come later rather than sooner.
The Fed, in a statement after its two-day meeting, dropped an assurance that it would remain “patient” before acting on rates. The central bank however said that it won’t tighten policy until it is “reasonably confident” inflation will return to its target and the labor market improves further. Also Fed officials lowered their estimate for where the federal funds rate will be by end-2015 to 0.625% from a December forecast of 1.125%, suggesting that interest rate hikes would be quite gradual.
“Just because we removed the word patient from the statement doesn’t mean we are going to be impatient,” Ms. Yellen said in a postmeeting press conference.
Dollar index fell 2% to 97.67, suffering its worst daily drop in six years, with euro climbing above $1.09. US 10-year yield fell to 1.93%. Nymex oil rose $1.46 to $46.65 a barrel. Brent soared 4.5% or $2.40 to $55.91.
European markets ended mixed. FTSE climbed 1.6% on an increased economic growth forecast of 2.3% for the United Kingdom, as finance minister George Osborne also signaled plans to scale back austerity measures. Germany and Italy lost 0.5% and 0.7% respectively while France ended flat.
