(Yahoo!Finance) It's hard to believe, but the S&P 500 went six entire sessions without hitting a fresh, new all-time high. But thanks to the Fed's dovish assessment of the economy Wednesday afternoon, traders were given all the incentive they need, and took out the psychological 1,700 level - and then some.
