2:19 p.m. The Federal Reserve surprised no one with its statement today, but the lack of news didn’t juice markets. The Nasdaq Composite has dropped 0.4% to 7,539.47. The Fed released what “could have been the most boring, dull, and uneventful one I’ve read in a long time,” writes Bleakley Advisory Group’s Peter Boockvar.
