The S&P capped its biggest 8-day percentage gain in almost four years yesterday—rising more than 7%. The catalyst for yesterday’s gains was the minutes of the latest Federal Reserve meeting. Investors decided the meeting minutes were dovish (they weren’t, they were neutral at best) and bid up shares in a fast and furious late day rally.
