Markets gapped up on the AAPL earnings and were pretty flat early. The ES pulled back to fill the gap and everything waited for the Fed except AAPL, which pushed higher. In the end, the broad market closed dead flat but the NASDAQ was up on AAPL on 2 billion NASDAQ shares. Mixed results on the OR plays although I took more size on the shorts.
Net ticks: -2.5 ticks.
