June 10 (Reuters) - London-listed stocks opened higher after two days of declines on Wednesday, as cyclical stocks gained ahead of a policy decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve later in the day.
Banks and life insurers, which have taken a hit in the last two sessions, led gains among British stocks in early trading.
Focus remains on the Fed’s economic outlook and chairman Jerome Powell’s speech following the release of a policy statement.
