All Eyes on this week’s Federal Reserve Policy Meeting

This week’s Federal Reserve policy meeting is likely to top all other major events and economic data in Asia, as investors wait to see if the central bank undertakes a much-anticipated scaling back of its monetary stimulus.

The Fed meets on Tuesday and Wednesday, and many strategists expect the U.S. central bank to begin paring back its $85 billion monthly bond buying.

What does that mean for Asian markets? Well, analysts say that depends on just how much the Fed tapers its monthly asset purchases.
