Wow, what a difference a month makes! The stock market has been on a nice run fueled by the FOMC rate cut on September 18th, with the S&P 500 index up 6.18% since my last update:

My only moves of note were locking up some short term cash in a 3 month E-Loan CD @5.55% APY while that deal was still available while also jumping in on the latest and greatest Penfed CD offer by putting some more cash in a
4 year Penfed CD @6.00% APY.
