    U.S. Treasuries signal trouble, stocks fall on global growth worries

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Asian shares hold near 6-month high on hopes of dovish Fed

    Asian shares got off to a cautious start on Wednesday, holding close to six-month highs on hopes the U.S. Federal Reserve will stick to a dovish stance and unveil a plan to stop cutting bond holdings later this year. The Federal Reserve, which is wrapping up its two-day policy review later on Wednesday, is expected to lower its policymakers' rate projections from December, when their median expectations were for two rate hikes this year. Since the beginning of year, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has said the central bank would be patient - interpreted as code word for holding off on a rate hike - on signs of slowing economic growth in the United States and many parts of the world.
