Stocks broke out in a big way today, gapping higher as upbeat investor sentiment roars back to life. All three major indexes notched their fifth-consecutive wins, after the Federal Reserve held interest rates steady for the third-straight meeting. The Fed also indicated three rate cuts to come next year and lowered its 2024 inflation forecast. The Dow added 512 points, closing at a record high and above 37,000 for the first time ever. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed at their highest levels since January 2022.
