The attention of operators and investors is focused on the pace of increases that the Fed takes at the end of the meeting, with bets divided between increases of 0.75 and 1 basis point, with three-quarters of a point being the most likely.

Investors are also keeping an eye on comments from Fed monetary policy makers, waiting for clues indicating future directions.
