Futures were slightly lower following the Federal Reserve’s decision to raise short-term interest rates by 25 basis points — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.

The Fed also said it will start shrinking its balance sheet of $9 trillion in assets as soon as its next meeting in May.

Each Thursday, I’ll combine two of my favorite things into a big-money opportunity: options plays and ETFs.
