"The Fed surprised the market with keeping QE unchanged and gave it a Greenspan-esque boost last week but it proved only temporary as the broad markets have given those gains back," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director of NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes. "The interest-rate sensitive asset classes were given a reprieve as MLPs, preferreds, and corporate debts all bounced and have remained steady."
