US Fed about to show its cards

TOKYO -- The U.S. Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday begins a two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting, during which it is to make a decision on whether interest rates need to be raised for the first time in nine years.

     If the Fed carries out an immediate hike, Japanese stocks could fall and the yen could strengthen because market players would not have fully taken into account any such move.
