The U.S. dollar was higher against its major counterparts in the Asian session on Tuesday, as investors looked ahead to the Federal Reserve policy meeting for more clues on the rate-hike trajectory in the future.

The Fed begins its two-day meeting later today and will announce the policy decision on Wednesday.

The central bank is expected to raise interest rates by 25 basis points 4.75-5.00 percent.

The Fed will also release its latest dot-plot projections on interest rates, inflation, unemployment and economic output.

Concerns over the banking crisis ebbed as investors digested a forced takeover of Credit Suisse by UBS over the weekend.
