Did someone say Santa?  Could today be the day Santa cancels his PTO and goes back to Wall Street?  Let's certainly hope so.

All markets started red in the morning and later turned green after the Fed's announcement.  Technology stocks lead the rally in today's session.

Nasdaq finished over 2% and the rest above 1%.  

It's another festivus miracle!
