NEW YORK/LONDON: U.S. equities rose sharply and the dollar lost ground as investors bet the Federal Reserve would slow interest rate hikes following its announcement on Wednesday of an increase in rates in line with expectations.

Oil futures settled higher after a report of lower inventories in the United States, while cuts in Russian gas flows to Europe offset concerns about weaker demand and higher U.S. interest rates. Read full story

Ten-year U.S. Treasury bond yields - the reference rate for the global cost of capital - were volatile but pared most of their declines after Fed Chair Jerome Powell spoke to reporters following the central bank's increase of its benchmark overnight interest rate by three-quarters of a percentage point.

The Fed is pushing up rates to cool the sharpest inflation since the 1980s and signaled "ongoing increases" in borrowing costs may still be ahead despite evidence of a slowing economy. Read full story

Powell told reporters it will likely be appropriate to slow the pace of increases as rates get more restrictive and that the Fed wants to get to moderately restrictive levels by year-end.

He also said that a lack of visibility into the economy's future trajectory means the Fed can only provide reliable guidance on a "meeting by meeting" basis. Read full story

Some strategists pointed to Powell's lack of guidance for a specific rate hike in September and his comment that previous hikes would keep reducing inflation as potentially dovish signs.

While most asset classes chopped around after the Fed Statement came out at 2 p.m. ET (1800 GMT), stocks rose sharply as Powell spoke and Treasury yields took a dive before regaining ground.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI rose 436.05 points, or 1.37%, to 32,197.59, the S&P 500 .SPX gained 102.56 points, or 2.62%, to 4,023.61 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 469.85 points, or 4.06%, to 12,032.42.

MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe gained 1.71%. .

"The Fed's comments suggest the pace of rate hikes will slow considerably in the coming months," said George Bory, chief investment strategist for fixed income with Allspring Global Investments.

Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at The Leuthold Group in Minneapolis noted that Powell "acknowledged the weakness showing up in real economic growth" and was waiting for economic data in the next few months before giving guidance.

So this could mean "even slower real growth and better inflation data suggesting not much more may be needed," Paulsen said.

Jack Ablin, chief investment officer and founding partner at Cresset Capital in Chicago said Wednesday's hike highlighted the most aggressive series of Fed moves since the 1980s when Paul Volcker was the Fed chair.
