12:55 pm : Some increased buying interest has helped the major averages inch higher. At this point, eight of the ten economic sectors are trading on positive ground. Outside of commodity-driven advances in the Energy (+1.5%) and Materials (+0.8%) sectors, though, gains remain modest. The equity market continues to await the impending FOMC decision and policy directive. A 1/4% increase to the fed funds rate is entirely expected, and the catalyst will rest within the policy statement. Meanwhile, Treasuries are holding steady. That market remains on the defensive, but is similarly awaiting the FOMC announcement. The yield on the 10-year has been vacillating between about 4.73% and 4.75% today; currently, it's at 4.74%.DJ30 +26.10 NASDAQ +10.31 SP500 +3.81 NASDAQ Dec/Adv/Vol 1344/1561/969.4 mln NYSE Dec/Adv/Vol 1399/1730/705.9 mln
