As the Fed decision looms, European markets are muted. Tonight is judgement day for the US economy as Janet Yellen will announce if we will get lift-off from a zero bound interest rate for the first time in nearly a decade.
European markets opened a tad lower, and appears to be losing ground as investors take a risk off approach. Futures markets place the probability of a hike today at 32 per cent, rising to 64.3 per cent for the Fed’s December meeting.
