The big news for Thursday January 3, 2001, was of course the aggressive Fed decision to cut rates. The market exploded on this news with the Dow up 299.60 and the Nasdaq up an amazing 324.83, +14.17%. This news helped investors' confidence over the current economic conditions and thus brought out the bargain hunters to stage an impressive rally. The FED hinted that the door is open for yet another rate cut at the month-end FOMC meeting.
