The Fed had announced another round of bond buying program to replace Operation Twist at its last FOMC. European markets ended mostly lower earlier today, with the EURO STOXX 50 Index closing 0.37% lower. Asian markets ended mostly higher overnight, with the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong closing 0.37% higher.
