News Flash: Fed Cuts Interest Rate Again

We knew there was a possibility the Fed would decide to cut rates during its two-day meeting, and this afternoon it announced a one-half percentage point rate cut.

The WSJ added that the action is "capping an unprecedented eight-day period in which officials slashed rates massively to ward off recession risks."
