The market is looking good today, after some positive comments from

Fed

Chairman Ben Bernanke sent the markets off to the races this morning. We also saw some solid earnings reports come out last night and earlier today. Don't forget, it's options expiration day, and we could see some volatile trading as a result. Here are the stock plays in the news for traders to monitor.
