  1. Fed's dovishness kicks in

    Stocks actually opened lower on Thursday and the pre-market futures were fairly negative, but when that opening bell rang, everyone turned into bulls. The Fed's "no more rate hikes" policy created a failed rally on Wednesday but for some reason it stuck on Thursday. Perhaps brokers were calling their clients and telling them they need to buy, buy, buy? I don't know. The Dow gained 217-points and small caps, ...
