Investors turned to Washington on Wednesday, where the Federal Reserve made its latest policy statement, and where Big Tech chiefs gathered to face Congress in a historic antitrust hearing. It also saw Eastman Kodak (KODK) continue its sudden sizzling run.

The House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee questioned Amazon.com's (AMZN, +1.1%) Jeff Bezos, Apple's (AAPL, +1.9%) Tim Cook, Facebook's (FB, +1.4%) Mark Zuckerberg and Alphabet's (GOOGL, +1.3%) Sundar Pichai on Wednesday, but the hearing did little to shake confidence in their respective shares.
