It's been a volatile week on the charts, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) tracking a 400-point range (with both the intra-week high and low occurring in Wednesday's Fed-driven session) thus far. In fact, the Dow -- which now includes Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) -- is on pace to make its 10th triple-digit move in 11 sessions. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite (COMP) made its first foray north of the 5,000 mark since March 2 -- and touched a 15-year high today -- while the S&P 500 Index (SPX) is on pace to notch its first weekly close north of 2,100 since late February. Additionally, small-caps put in a strong showing, with the Russell 2000 Index (RUT) hitting a record high in three out of five sessions this week. Off the charts, a number of stories grabbed the attention of those on and off Wall Street. Here's a quick recap of some headlines that hit this week.
