The US markets ended mixed on Wednesday as a rally that had started post the Fed's statement fizzled. Stocks had opened higher earlier in the day as investors cheered some encouraging readings on the economy. The Federal Reserve meanwhile, kept its benchmark federal funds rate unchanged and repeated it will keep interest rates near zero for "an extended period". The Fed specified for the first time that policy will stay unchanged as long as inflation expectations are stable and unemployment fails to decline. In economic data from the US, the ISM reported its gauge of the services sector dropped to 50.6 in October from 50.9 in September.
