    Benchmark indices ended the day higher, as European markets rallied, following a recovery in oil prices. Asian markets also mostly ended higher after strong closings in the US. All eyes are on the US Fed meet of Dec 15-16, which will be followed by a press conference later on Dec 16. Most analysts are expecting the US Fed to announce its first interest rate hike since June 2006.
