Forex GBPJPY   AUDUSD  US Dollar surged after the FOMC raised their 2015 forecast for the target rate on overnight loans to 1.375% from 1.125%. Yen weakness, which is fast becoming the dominant theme in FX markets, continued as US yields rose. AUD fell on concerns about Chinese growth prospects.   
Equity  China H Shares  ASX 200 Optimism about Alibaba's (BABA) IPO helped to fuel Chinese stocks while the Australian stock market closed lower for the sixth straight session.
Commodity  Natural Gas  Gold Forecasts for cooler temperatures raised expectations for heating demand and led to a rise in natural gas. Gold & Silver fell on fears of rate hikes becoming a reality a bit faster than had been predicted.
