Wall Street sets to go higher ahead of anticipated US Fed rate's hike

The US stock market opened higher ahead of the widely anticipated rate hike by the US Federal Reserve, the first of the anticipated three hikes for 2017.

The recovery in the stock market was buoyed by the rebound in oil prices.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.21% to 20,880.15 while the S&P 500 gained 0.36% to 2,373.98. The Nasdaq Composite added 0.18% to 5,867.125.

One of the stock market that we have been keeping an eye on is Microsoft since 2014, which continued to move higher along with the broader market, gaining 0.16% to US $64.51, giving it a market capitalization of US $497.7 billion.
