Overseas Trading: Global Markets Mixed in Lead-Up to Fed

Chinese stocks tumbled late in the session, while Japanese markets shrugged off disappointing trade data

Asian stocks settled mixed, as traders weighed an impending Fed decision against Wall Street's positive lead and a bounce in oil prices. Leading the way was Japan's Nikkei, which popped 1.4% despite a wider-than-expected trade deficit, while South Korea's Kospi settled 0.05% above breakeven. On the other side of the ledger, China's Shanghai Composite dropped during the final half-hour of trading to end with a 2.1% loss -- amid news that a high official at the China Securities Regulatory Commission is being investigated for a "severe violation of discipline" -- and Hong Kong's Hang Seng gave back 0.5%.

European bourses have also failed to pick a direction, ahead of the Fed decision. London's FTSE 100 is off 0.3%, despite a 0.2% month-over-month gain in retail sales. By contrast, the German DAX and French CAC 40 are each up 0.3%.
