The U.S. equity market delivered a mixed showing yesterday. The day’s biggest news came at 2:00 P.M. (EDT) when the Federal Reserve issued its monetary policy statement following its two-day meeting. The statement contained no surprises (more below) and the market’s reaction was rather muted. There was some selling in the minutes following the Fed’s release, but the bears never were able to gain a strong hold.
