Investors are anxiously awaiting the announcement of Fed policy chairman Jerome Powell to determine the speed of his monthly purchasing program, as he seeks to address the ongoing inflation. The Fed is on Wednesday expected to signal a rapid windfall of its $ 120 billion in a one-month savings plan in a bid to fight higher inflation, which could move one step closer to raising interest rate.
