U.S. Stock Market Attempts to Climb Ahead of Expected Fed Rate Hike
U.S. stock-market indexes were tentatively higher on Wednesday as investors awaited a decision from the Federal Reserve, which is widely expected to increase rates by a quarter of a percentage point and offer details on path forward for monetary policy.
The S&P 500 rose 4 points, or 0.2%, to 2,791, with six of the 11 main sectors trading lower. Telecoms shares were among the worst hit, with the sector down more than 3% after Tuesdayâ€™s court ruling that AT&T can go ahead with its nearly $ 85 billion acquisition of Time Warner.
The Nasdaq Composite added 42 points, or 0.5%, to 7,746 and set an intraday record at 7,747.16.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average edged 22 points, or 0.1%, to 25,340.
