The Federal Reserve's decision to maintain interest rates on Wednesday has helped grease the wheels of the market's rally, said UBS' Art Cashin, with Greece's debt woes largely being ignored.
The central bank held interest rates steady at their crisis-era levels, and suggested the economy—while softer—was on a path to recovery. Although Fed officials' forecasts suggest a rate hike may come by year's end, market watchers say the pace of any eventual tightening is likely to be gradual.
"The market is reinterpreting what it saw yesterday as either a one and done or maybe still a none and done," said Cashin. "The Fed is being seen as far more bullish."

"The bull is not dead and we have a way to go," said Willis. "Once we finnaly pull the band-aid off and get why we are fixated on normalizing rates."
At least for the moment, investors certainly seemed to agree. The closed at 5,132.95, up 68.07 points. The S&P 500 and indexes also closed higher. The Fed's super-easy monetary policy has been a major factor behind the stock rally, some analysts say.
However, Cashin warned the downside loomed just around the corner, based on historical patterns.
"Tomorrow there is a chance for a record volume. Downside is the week after the June expiration has a history of a negative bias."
