There is plenty of event risk scheduled over the next 24 hours, but the market will be preoccupied by a single item: the FOMC rate decision. Given the dependency on stimulus to subsidize risk-taking and the market's propensity to speculate on the timing of the Fed's eventual exit from its moral hazard role, this event can cut to the fundamental bone.
