The FANG stocks rose after the FOMC announcement, with Netflix (NFLX) pushing into overhead resistance. AAPL, AMZN, FB, and GOOGL performed similarly, breaking to new intraday highs after the FED news.

Amazon (+2.01%) and Google (+1.99%) finished close to the highs of the day, nearly forming Marubozu candles themselves, while Apple faded more than most, closing (-1.50) from its intraday high of 189.49. That said, Citi raised its target on Apple to $220 from $170 this morning. All of these stocks closed positive on the session.
