Dow up 162 points after Yellen’s comments

Market Recap For Wednesday, April 16th 2014

It was a boring sideways morning of trading before Janet Yellen’s comments at the Economic Club of New York. In her speech Yellen said the Fed has a “continuing commitment” to support economic recovery. It looks like this is what traders wanted to hear as the markets rallied into the close with stocks ending higher for the third consecutive day.

The S&P ended the day up 19.25 points and the DOW had an impressive triple digit day, up 162 points.
