Some testing early drifted back and closed mixed on the day. Large caps back to lagging and Apple helped the NASDAQ. Overall filler day heading into the FOMC announcement today. All eyes fixed on what the text says and what Yellen will pontificate in the news conference. Expect some selling into the announcement and then it will react following how it is interpreted and speculated upon. Busy day.
