    US stocks jump after Fed announces smaller rate rise

    US stocks closed at their highest level since last summer and government bonds swung higher on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve announced a further slowdown in the pace of interest rate rises. The US central bank lifted its benchmark interest rate 0.25 percentage points to a range of 4.5 per cent to 4.75 per cent. The widely expected move in the federal funds rate was less than previous increases of 0.5 or 0.75 percentage points undertaken at recent meetings. Wall Street’s benchmark S&P 500 index, which had slipped earlier in the day, rebounded after Fed chair Jay Powell spoke to reporters and closed 1.1 per cent higher for the day.
