Stocks surged to gains before and after the Fed’s relatively positive report on the economy, the Wall Street Journal reports. Most investors took the Fed’s decision to end its buying of long-term Treasurys as a sign that the economy is returning to normal. Financials led gains, along with homebuilders, who rallied on the news of strong profits by Toll Brothers. The Dow closed up 120 points at 9,361. The Nasdaq added 30 points to close at 1,999, and the S&P 500 added 11 points, settling at 1,006.
