By Devik Jain and Ankika Biswas (Reuters) -U.S. stock indexes were set to open higher on Wednesday ahead of a widely expected hefty rate hike from the Federal Reserve, with investors awaiting cues on the length and depth of further policy tightening to tame surging price pressures. The U.S. central bank will likely lift its policy rate by 75 basis points for the third time to a 3.00-3.25% range at the end of its two-day policy meeting, which will be followed by Fed Chair Jerome Powell's news conference. Updated economic projections from policymakers will be in focus, as investors would like to gauge where interest rates are headed, how long it would take inflation to fall and the pain rising prices are inflicting on the U.S. economy. "What (investors) really want to see is whether or not we are going to have a continued, super hawkish Fed in terms of the way that messaging has been - are they really committed to getting inflation under control at the risk of pulling the economy into a recession," said Brandon Pizzurro, director of public investments at GuideStone Capital Management. Markets are pricing in a 19% chance of a 100 bps rate increase later in the day and seeing a terminal rate at 4.50% in March 2023. The benchmark S&P 500 is hovering near two-month lows and is below 3,900 points - a level considered by technical analysts as strong support for the index. "If (stocks) drop on disappointing Fed, no one should be surprised if we test those June (lows)," said David Wagner, portfolio manager at Aptus Capital Advisors in Cincinnati, Ohio. As interest rates continue to creep up, pressuring stock valuations, Wagner recommends having a portfolio tilted toward value stocks. The S&P 500 value index, which includes cyclical and economy-linked stocks such as banks, energy, industrials and materials, is down nearly 12% so far this year, compared with a 25.5% drop in its growth counterpart, which is dominated by technology shares. The yield curve inversion between the two-year and 10-year notes - seen as a recession harbinger - and growing evidence of the impact of decades high inflation on earnings outlooks from companies ranging from FedEx Corp (NYSE:FDX) to Ford Motor (NYSE:F) Co have also added to woes in a seasonally weak period for markets. At 8:38 a.m. ET, Dow e-minis were up 164 points, or 0.53%, S&P 500 e-minis were up 22.75 points, or 0.59%, and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were up 60.25 points, or 0.51%. Meanwhile, shares of U.S. defense companies Northrop Grumman Corp (NYSE:NOC), Raytheon Technologies (NYSE:RTX) Corp and Lockheed Martin Corp (NYSE:LMT) rose between 1.3% and 1.9% in premarket trading as President Vladimir Putin ordered Russia's first mobilization since World War Two. Coty (NYSE:COTY) Inc gained 5.6% after the CoverGirl cosmetics maker raised its first quarter 2023 revenue and gross margin forecasts on stronger demand for beauty products. General Mills Inc (NYSE:GIS) added 2.3% after the Cheerios cereal maker raised full-year sales and profit outlook, banking on higher prices and resilient demand for its breakfast cereals, snack bars and pet food. Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) and Western Digital (NASDAQ:WDC) fell 1.8% and 1.5%, respectively, after Mizuho downgraded shares of both companies to "neutral" from "buy".

By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Stock markets stumbled on Tuesday as Wall Street opened lower, Europe gave up gains built on bumper BP (NYSE:BP) profits, while the euro was pegged back as the European Central Bank tried to cool interest rate hike expectations. Wall Street saw a groggy restart on disappointing Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) earnings, another slump in Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) owner Meta's shares and the collapse of Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA)'s mega deal to buy the firm that designs chips for the likes of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Europe also turned red again although oil and mining shares were still clinging to positive territory after FTSE-listed BP reported a whopping $12.8 billion annual profit thanks to soaring gas and oil prices. (EU) It was BP's highest profit in eight years, working out at staggering $24,353 a minute - more than someone on minimum wages in major economies would earn in a year. It had also helped traders brush off Washington slapping warnings on another 33 Chinese firms and the sight of the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield - the most influential driver of global borrowing costs - hitting a new 2-year high. [.SS] Currency and bond market traders are currently laser-focused on which central banks will hike their interest rates the fastest and furthest this year following the rapid rise in global inflation. "Central banks globally have all engaged in a hawkish pivot," said BlueBay Asset Management's David Riley. "As their tolerance for higher inflation persistently is less than previously signalled we are shifting to a regime where there will be more macro volatility." Comments from ECB President Lagarde on Monday that there was currently no need for major monetary policy tightening weakened the euro for a second consecutive day. It had initially nudged down the bond yields - a proxy for borrowing costs - for high-debt countries such as Italy, Greece and Spain, although that reversed as Spain's ECB council member, Pablo Hernandez de Cos, spoke on Tuesday about gradual tightening. Italian government bonds duly whipsawed, with the 10-year yield first falling to 1.78% before rearing right back up to 1.85%. [GVD/EUR] CHOPPY CHINA U.S. stocks made a subdued open on Wall Street after the earnings disappointments and a fresh 1.2% drop in Facebook owner Meta's shares after billionaire investor Peter Thiel decided to step down from the company's board. Focus is also on inflation data this week that could offer more clues on the Fed's first post-COVID rate hike. Pfizer fell 3.7% in early trading as the drugmaker's forecasts for its COVID-19 vaccine and antiviral pills fell short of Wall Street estimates, while Coty (NYSE:COTY) jumped 3% after raising its forecasts. Asia's session had been volatile overnight too. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares ended flat overall but blue chip Chinese stocks dropped to a 19-month low after big tech firms' heavy losses and U.S. export warnings on 33 new Chinese firms. [.SS] (HK) The prospect of global rates rising had pushed Japanese government bond yields up too, while those on benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasuries briefly touched 1.96%. Back in the currency market Russia's rouble hit a four-week high after marathon talks between President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron have kept up hopes that war in Ukraine will be avoided. It helped oil come off Monday's seven-year high of $94 on Monday. It was trading lower at $92 also ahead of the resumption of indirect talks in Vienna later between the United States and Iran, which may revive a nuclear agreement that could eventually allow more oil exports from the OPEC producer. A deal could allow over 1 million barrels per day of Iranian oil, equal to over 1% of global supply, back onto the market, though that was still a distant possibility. Brent crude was down $1.30, or 1.4%, at $91.37 a barrel. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude fell $1.55, or 1.4%, at $89.95. Eight rounds of indirect talks between Tehran and Washington since April have yet to result in an agreement on resuming the 2015 nuclear deal. Differences remain about the speed and scope of lifting sanctions on Tehran.

With few negative catalysts to dampen the risk-on sentiment, all three major U.S. indexes crept modestly higher on Tuesday. The S&P 500 was able to notch its 51st record close of the year and the Nasdaq its 30th record closing highs for 2021. With the gains, the SPX and Nasdaq have now both risen 5-straight days (the Dow is on a 4-day win streak) – but volume on U.S. exchanges was just 8.29 billion shares, making it one of the slowest trading days of the year.
