    Muted Start Seen for Asian Stocks; Treasuries Flat: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks were set for a muted start Tuesday as traders bided their time ahead of this week’s key Federal Reserve decision. The dollar and Treasures were little changed. Futures in Japan and Australia were flat after the S&P 500 Index closed little changed. The Nasdaq 100 posted a modest gain as technology shares outperformed. The dollar briefly weakened after a Federal Reserve survey of factories in New York state plunged in June by the most on record, then climbed back from the day’s lows. Treasuries pared a drop on the news. Crude oil declined.Traders are refraining from putting on big bets ahead of the key central bank decision Wednesday, where they will look for signals on the likelihood of interest-rates cuts ahead. There’s a widespread desire for proof the Fed is ready to act, but too much change could raise alarm.“We know that the Fed doesn’t like to surprise people and the idea at this point of them digging in their heels and saying ‘absolutely no cuts,’ I think is very unlikely,” Josh Kutin, head of asset allocation for Columbia Threadneedle, said in an interview at Bloomberg’s New York headquarters. “Will it be the full number that’s priced in right now? I think that’s unlikely as well. I think somewhere between is pretty fair.”Elsewhere, oil fell on Monday as Saudi Arabia expressed hope that OPEC and its allies will agree to extend production cuts into the second half.Here are some key events coming up:Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan and the Bank of England all set monetary policy, along with central banks in Norway, Brazil, Taiwan and Indonesia.The Fed meeting begins Tuesday with a decision and press conference the next day. Officials are expected to debate a rate cut to shelter the U.S. economy, in part, from the fallout caused by escalating trade disputes.In the U.K. Tuesday there will be a second ballot on the leadership contest to choose Theresa May’s successor as leader of the country’s ruling party.Final May CPI data for the euro zone are due Tuesday.These are the main moves in markets:StocksNikkei 225 futures were little changed.Hang Seng futures were little changed.The S&P 500 Index rose 0.1%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.6%.The Stoxx Europe 600 closed little changed.

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.U.S. equities gained, led by FANG shares, while European stocks pared losses following a mixed session in Asia as a big week for central-bank policy gets underway. Crude oil slumped for the first time in three days.Facebook, Apple, Netflix and Google parent Alphabet led the Nasdaq Composite higher, while the Stoxx Europe 600 Index closed little changed.

Treasuries pared a drop on the news, but they stayed mostly lower alongside European bonds as investors looked ahead to a week in which the Fed, the Bank of Japan and the Bank of England all set monetary policy.“We’ll find out Wednesday if the market is right about how dovish it is when it comes to monetary policy,” said Arthur Hogan, chief market strategist at National Securities Corp. “So what we’re looking for is affirmation of where the market is already, and anything that fails to affirm that probably is a negative toward the S&P 500.”Investors will be scrutinizing the Fed’s decision and messaging on Wednesday for signals on the chances of rates cuts ahead. Meanwhile, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross reiterated that the prospect of a major trade deal is unlikely to emerge from a possible meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 summit in Osaka this month.“We know that the Fed doesn’t like to surprise people and the idea at this point of them digging in their heels and saying ’absolutely no cuts,’ I think is very unlikely,” Josh Kutin, head of asset allocation for Columbia Threadneedle, said in an interview at Bloomberg’s New York headquarters. “Will it be the full number that’s priced in right now?

    Special Report: How Japan turned against its 'bazooka'-wielding central bank chief

    In late January 2016, the lights were on well past midnight on the seventh floor of the Bank of Japan's headquarters. It was almost three years into central bank Governor Haruhiko Kuroda's audacious campaign to jolt Japan out of nearly two decades of deflation – and things were not going well. The small band of bureaucrats was trying to persuade the bank's nine-member board, which sets monetary policy, to approve a radical step: negative interest rates.
