Today, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) broke a three-day losing streak following renewed optimism in markets on the back of the Federal Reserve’s rate decision last night. At the end of the session, the benchmark index finished 0.82% higher at 7,364.7 points.
In a refreshing change of scenery, there was almost not a single sector in the red across Aussie markets on Thursday.

On the flip side, tech and energy shares shined the brightest today amid a slightly rosier outlook.
