Major averages finished roughly flat to higher on a relatively quiet, lower volume, pre-Thanksgiving trading day this past Wednesday. After an initial sell-off, the indexes all rallied to close well off their lows with the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrials, and Russell 2000 all ending the day in the green.
The Fed minutes which were released on Wednesday came as no surprise to the markets. They signaled that members were in agreement for a rate hike, and some mentioned that the Fed should hike rates in December to preserve the central bank's credibility.
Today's shortened session ends at 1 pm EST.
