Investors apparently factored the much-anticipted interest rate decrease into stock prices, so the market showed little reaction Wednesday to the Federal Reserve’s decision to lower rates 1/2%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which recorded a sharp increase Tuesday, gained only 6 points, or 0.1%, on Wednesday.

The Nasdaq composite, which posted a big gain on Monday, declined 66 points, or 2.3%, on Wednesday.

The Fed’s action Wednesday lowers the benchmark prime interest rate to 8.5%, the lowest level it has been in a year.
