Asian stocks bounced overnight, following the bullish lead of U.S. markets ahead of the Fed's two-day policy meeting. China's Shanghai Composite caught fire late in the session -- ending 4.9% higher amid suspected state buying, as well as rumors that trust fund accounts might not have to be liquidated. Hong Kong's Hang Seng and South Korea's Kospi jumped 2.4% and 2%, respectively, with the latter boosted by foreign buying. Rounding out the group, Japan's Nikkei added 0.8%, as exporters rallied -- while Standard & Poor's downgraded the nation's sovereign debt rating, citing massive government debt.

European markets are solidly higher today, as traders take a risk-on approach ahead of the Fed's meeting and digest a cooling inflation rate. London's FTSE 100 is up 1%, with M&A rumblings putting SABMiller center stage -- and sending its stock 23% higher. On the data front, U.K. unemployment held at 5.5%, and weekly earnings grew 2.9% year-over-year. Elsewhere, the French CAC 40 and German DAX have tacked on 1.5% and 0.7%, respectively.
