Investors are waiting on the Fed for direction in today's trading. Earnings news is moving some stocks. Alcoa (AA) is trading higher after beating estimates. The company's second quarter profit is being credited to the strength of its aluminum-smelting business. But a big miss is moving The Container Store (TCS) lower.
