COMMENTARY

The Fed finally did it. On Wednesday June 30, it raised interest rates by a

quarter-percentage point. But in a positive surprise for the market, the Fed

said it wasn't considering future hikes. The NASDAQ languished during the week

leading up to the Fed's decision, but posted a record high on Wednesday. The

Dow also rallied, ending the week with a 2.8% gain.
