Futures Rebound On Tech Earnings – Fed In Focus

U.S. equity futures rebounded on Wednesday on strong tech earnings, ahead of the Fed’s crucial interest rate statement.

Solid earnings from tech giant Microsoft boosted the sentiment ahead of the Fed’s decision on interest rates. Markets now expect the Fed to signal multiple rate hikes, but not until March.

Moreover, a potential for geopolitical risks, slower growth and earnings could make the Fed postpone its rate hikes even further.
