Stocks End October on High Note: Fed's FOMC on Deck

With no rate hike expected from the ongoing FOMC meeting this week, investors tacked on small gains as October came to a close.

In what was a sluggish session, the main indices limped higher, awaiting jobs data later in the week and the unveiling of some kind of tax bill from congress.

The Fed will release its policy announcement at 2:00 pm ET on Wednesday, though most analysts insist there will be little to motivate buyers or sellers.

At the Close, Tuesday, October 31, 2017:
Dow: 23,377.24, +28.50 (+0.12%)
NASDAQ: 6,727.67, +28.71 (+0.43%)
S&P 500: 2,575.26, +2.43 (+0.09%)
NYSE Composite: 12,341.01, +21.54 (+0.17%)
