US markets rise ahead of Fed meeting

Financial and telecommunication companies helped lead indexes higher.

Wall Street holds onto gains

US stocks are holding onto their gains, helped largely by risers in telecom shares. Trading remains lacklustre, however, as investors await the Federal Reserve's policy meeting.

The US central bank, which begins its two-day meeting on Tuesday, is widely expected to announce on Wednesday that it will begin paring back its stimulus programme.

While an interest rate increase is not expected, investors will closely watch Fed Chair Janet Yellen's views on inflation, which remains stuck below the Fed's 2% target rate. "People are in wait-and-see mode," said Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial.

The Dow Jones, which notched up its 41st record high this year, was up 0.16% at 22,368 points. The Nasdaq was very slightly ahead at 6,460.6, and the S&P 500 was also fractionally up at 2,506 points.


Mobile merger?

Shares in US telecoms groups T-Mobile and Sprint are rising on fresh reports of merger talks. T-Mobile, up 4%, and Sprint, up 5%, are the third and fourth biggest mobile firms in the US.

They have been the subject of merger talk before amid analysts' expectations of further consolidation in the telecoms sector.

Earlier this year, Japan's Softbank said it was interested in a deal with T-Mobile, which is 64%-owned by Germany's Deutsche Telekom.


Onwards and upwards

US stocks opened slightly higher on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones hitting another record, ahead of the two-day Federal Reserve meeting that is expected to roll out a plan to pare the central bank's bond holdings.

The Dow rose 31.18 points, or 0.14%, to 22,362.53. The S&P 500 gained 3.04 points, or 0.12%, to 2,506.91. The Nasdaq added 10.62 points, or 0.16%, to 6,465.26.
