Market recap: Stocks slumped, as the Fed's stance did little to soothe jitters sparked by the latest in a series of economic reports (I, II, III) that have come in weaker than expected this week. Small-company stocks, seen as most sensitive to economic trends, were hit hard. Commodity-related sectors were pressured as metals suffered brutal losses. Treasurys rallied, sending 10-year yields as low as 1.613%.

    It's not "weaker than expected" - it's "unexpectedly weaker"

    This is what "stimulus" does: the financial addict requires increasing doses of bad debt and bad money to experience the same fake euphoria.
    Of course, with each such abuse of the system the polity becomes more enervated even as Wall St and Big Media revel in their unreality and non being.
