Editors Note:

The chip sector posted a strong gain and that lifted the Russell and Nasdaq. The strong move by the semiconductors kept the Nasdaq and Russell from falling into the headline driven funk experienced by the Dow and S&P. The comments from Wilbur Ross and Mario Dragi caused market weakness in the morning but the indexes recovered slightly as headlines began to circulate about a compromise on the government shutdown. Overall it was a good day because the market did not decline on bad news.
