  1. Stocks not reacting well to good news

    Stocks tried to rally on Wednesday but investors found a reason to sell after the FOMC meeting wrapped up. There was an initial rally in stocks and sell off in bond yields and the dollar after the policy statement, but then volatility took over and they all reversed again shortly afterward. The Dow lost 174-points with a similar percentage loss in the S&P 500, while small caps were flat, but they gave up a solid early gain.
