Argentina next match date and time
By Swati Pandey and Vatsal Srivastava SYDNEY/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - New Zealand's central bank held interest rates on Thursday after the Federal Reserve delivered another widely anticipated hike, but trade deficit-laden Indonesia and the Philippines are expected to at least match the United States later in the day. In a statement that marked the end of the era of "accommodative" monetary policy, Fed policymakers lifted the rates by 25 basis points (bps) to 2.00-2.25 percent. The U.S. central bank foresees another hike in December, three more next year, and one in 2020. But for the stronger Asian economies, which are increasingly gravitating towards China on trade and investment, and away from the United States, the Fed outlook does not move the needle as much as it did during its previous tightening cycles. South Korea's central bank Governor Lee Ju-yeol said the Sino-U.S. trade conflict, as well as weakness in inflation and the job market weighed against policy tightening.

News / UK and world by Press Association August 22, 2018, 9:34 pm FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Daily newsletter The annual battle for the hearts and minds of football game fans is upon us once again, as the next instalments of the Fifa and Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series prepare to launch. For more than 15 years now, the two games have been in truth the only real options when it comes to a high-profile video game representing the sport. It’s an engaging battle too, with Fifa (as the name suggests) long seen as the “official’ game, complete with team, competition, player and stadium licences across the board.
