TUESDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

U.S. stock index futures traded higher on Tuesday morning, broadly supported on expectations the Federal Reserve could strike a dovish tone later in the session.

Market focus is largely attuned to central bank expectations, with the Fed due to kick-off its two-day policy meeting on Tuesday.

With global economic growth appearing to slow, most market participants anticipate the U.S. central bank to adopt a cautious tone. The Federal Reserve is also expected to lower its interest rate forecasts — or “dot plots” — to show little or no further tightening in 2019.
