After a deal in Washington was announced to end the partial government shutdown and authorize U.S. debt payments once again, the market is poised to head higher, Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso said Wednesday.
"It could be a sell-the-news event," he said. "But we've also had Syria, we've had taper talks, we've had budget, we've had shutdown, we've had shutdown—none of that has killed the marketplace. Err on the side of higher markets."
Stocks closed at session highs, with the up 200 points and the S&P 500 within 1 percent of its record, after Senate leaders announced a long-awaited compromise to end the budget stalemate.
On CNBC's "Fast Money," Josh Brown of Ritholtz Wealth Management said that he could make the case for the market's going in either direction but that chances are that it would climb.
"It's really tough, but I think if you have to err on one side or the other, I think you want to think about the market finishing strong, and how can you do the best in the next two and a half months," he said.
Tim Seymour of EmergingMoney.com noted that the run up in stocks was broad-based and saw a few sectors that would do well.
"I still think miners, metals and even some of the industrials—I like the airline trade a lot here," he said. "I don't think there's anything standing in your way, but I see indigestion this week."
StockMonster's Guy Adami said that the market reacted positively on the news of a deal in Washington, as he had expected.
"Then it becomes an earnings story, which it is," he said. "And now let's see what happens."
