Fed meeting in focus; third Brexit vote blocked

Market focus is largely attuned to central bank expectations, with the Fed due to kick-off its two-day policy meeting later in the session.

In Asia, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares, excluding Japan, was little changed from the previous session.
