Fed Yellen raised interest rates a quarter percent today and the stock market loved it. The Nasdaq 100 popped early, and then pulled back, but the S&P 500 kept going up all morning. By midday, just before the FOMC, they pulled back just a little going into that meeting, and then exploded. They pulled back again and rallied sharply. Only at the end of the day did they pull back a little to pare back the profits.


Net on the day, the Dow was up 112.73 at 20,950.10. The S&P 500 was up 19.81 to 2385.26. The Nasdaq 100 was up 34.08 at 5416.25.

Advance-declines were almost 6 to 1 positive on the New York Stock Exchange, and 6 to 1 positive on the Nasdaq. Up/down volume was 7 to 1 positive on New York, total volume of 3.85 billion shares traded. The Nasdaq traded 1.9 billion shares and had a 2 1/2 to 1 positive volume ratio.
