    • World markets are ending their last full week of the year on a high, as Wall Street boasted its biggest two-day advance since late 2011 and European shares headed for their strongest week of the year.
    • The gains came amid the Fed's "patient" approach to raising interest rates and as investors began to see the advantages of lower oil and fuel costs that should ultimately help global growth.
    • Brent crude is above the key $60 mark, up 1.5% at $60.14 a barrel. WTI is also up 1.5% at $54.90.
    • U.S. futures are also pumping higher: Dow +0.4%, S&P +0.3%, Nasdaq +0.5%.

    • Dow and S&P 500 futures are up 1.1% and Nasdaq 100 futures are up 1.3% amid a strong global rally as oil gains another 2% to $58 per barrel.
    • Europe's up over 2% as the Swiss central bank - defending its CHF1.20 floor against the euro - introduces a negative deposit rate. The Nikkei gained 2.3% overnight, though Shanghai slipped marginally.

    • The Fed walks a fine line in its latest releases, making a rate hike in 2015 a near-certainty, but noting too-low inflation as making the pace of tightening slower than previously thought.
    • Stocks like the news, with the Dow (DIA +1.6%), S&P 500 (SPY +1.9%), and Nasdaq 100 (QQQ +1.6%) all popping to session highs.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield jumps nine basis points to 2.14%, and the dollar (UUP +0.4%) has given up some of its gains.
    • TLT -1%, TBT +2%
    • Ahead more than 3% ahead of the decision, WTI crude oil (NYSEARCA:USO) is now up 1.5% at $57.26. Gold (NYSEARCA:GLD) is up marginally following the news, now sitting at $1,200 per ounce.
    • Janet Yellen's press conference begins at 2:30 ET
    • Previously: "Patient" replaces "considerable time" in FOMC statement (Dec. 17, 2014)
    • Previously: Employment outlook improves, inflation outlook weakens in Fed projections (Dec. 17, 2014)

    • Will or won't the Fed remove the "considerable time" language from its policy statement today? What seemed like a slam dunk to remove the wording a few weeks ago isn't so much today after a crash in the price of oil and the resultant jittery stock market. The FOMC statement is set for 2 ET, followed by a Janet Yellen press conference.
    • U.S. stock index futures are higher in the area of 0.75% as oil renews its slide, down 1% to $55.38 per barre.
    • Europe's broadly lower and China was a winner again overnight in Asia.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up four basis points at 2.10% and gold gains $7 per ounce to $1,201.

    • Stocks have reversed opening losses to turn sharply higher, with the Dow (NYSEARCA:DIA) and S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) each ahead by more than 1%, and the Nasdaq (NASDAQ:QQQhigher by 0.7%. Alongside that turnaround is oil (NYSEARCA:USO), which plunged to a $53 handle earlier in the session, but is now ahead by 1.4% to $56.70.
    • Europe - which started in the green and than turned lower - turned around again to close on the highs, the Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ+2.4%, with Italy (NYSEARCA:EWI+3.2%, Germany (NYSEARCA:EWG+2.5%, France (NYSEARCA:EWQ+2.2%, Spain (NYSEARCA:EWP) +2.1%, U.K. (NYSEARCA:EWU+2.5%.

    • S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) and DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA) futures are down 0.4% and the Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) down 0.6% after Russia overnight jacked interest rates by 700 basis points in an attempt to save the ruble from disappearing. After a brief bounce to about 60 per dollar, it's plunged to 73. Crude oil is off another 3.5% and below $54 per barrel.
    • Early European gains have vanished, and the Nikkei fell 2% overnight (though Shanghai gained 2.3%).

    • While publicly traded stocks at 35% remain the most popular investment, that's down from 43% one year ago and 49% in 2012. ETFs at 25% are up from 21% one year ago.
    • The most popular equity sectors are financials (NYSEARCA:XLF) at 27%, followed by Consumer Discretionary (NYSEARCA:XLY), and Energy (NYSEARCA:XLE), both at 16%.
    • Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) again hold the two top spots for individual picks, with the S&P 500 SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY), the Health Care SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLV), and the MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:EEM) rounding out the top five.
