  1. Fed reverses pullback

    Stocks were falling at the open on Thursday, mostly following through on recent losses, but also in sympathy with streaming content leader Netflix, whose 10% loss weighed on the Nasdaq until... the Fed came to the rescue again. The Dow was flat, gaining 3-points, but the broader indices like the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Small Caps, as well as the Transports, all closed with decent gains.
