The Federal Reserve refrained from hiking interest rates for a second-straight month. While the central bank did not eliminate the possibility of future hikes, it kept interest rates unchanged between 5.25% and 5.5%, noting the economy is growing at a "solid pace."

Stocks rallied in response to the largely anticipated move. The Dow and Nasdaq added triple digits, with the former securing a third consecutive daily win after yesterday finishing October with a third-straight monthly loss. The S&P 500 also settled with a notable gain, while the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) extended its losing streak for a third session.
