Wall Street rose to a new all-time high today after the Federal Reserve surprised investors and said it would not cut its bond-buying program, which helps support the economic recovery with lower interest rates.
The Fed, led by chairman Ben S. Bernanke, was widely expected to pull back on its $85 billion a month program to buy mortgage-backed securities and Treasury debt. The pause is good news for investors, who love low interest rates, but also a sign that the economy is not as strong as recently hoped.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
