1) U.S. Equity markets finished the day slightly higher after the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 29.58 or 0.11%, the S&P 500 added 9.11 or 0.29% while the NASDAQ 100 closed higher by 37.87 or 0.44% and the Russell 2000 finished higher by 0.21 or 0.01%.
2) Crude Oil Futures dropped $0.40 or 0.68% after an unexpected build in U.S. crude inventory while Gold Futures gained $11.60 or 0.79% on weakness in the U.S. dollar. The Bond market rallied and the yield on the 10-Year Treasury Note Settled at 1.794%.
3) It looks as though we may end the year very quietly and kick off the New Year near all-time highs. Earlier today, the Federal Reserve announced they are keeping rates unchanged and are likely to take no action next year due to persistently low inflation.
