Asian Stocks Open High

Get ready for another wild ride in the worldwide markets. The Asian stock markets bounced back Wednesday upon opening after the U.S. Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 430 points up and Federal Reserve announced interest rates will stay near zero for two years. But investors still were wary even after the U.S. Central Bank’s move, and demanded safe havens for gold and the neutral Swiss franc. The Asian FTSE, which measures markets across Asia, jumped 2.7 percent in the opening hours, and the benchmark Japanese company Nikkei was up 1.8 percent. Other stocks such as Otsuka, Samsung Electronics, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto were all up.
