Dow and S&P Hit Record Close

Today was a good one for the penny crunchers on Wall Street. On Tuesday, the Dow Jones and Standard & Poor's 500 index closed the day with all-time record highs. The Federal Reserve is debating a plan to reel back a government bond-buying program that will be announced Wednesday afternoon, but is expected to stay intact. Other companies, like Apple and drug maker Pfizer posted good, but not great, news, while a new set of data suggested that economic growth was inhibited by the two week government shutdown.
