The agreement increases the possibility that the Fed will reduce the size of its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, a major factor in equities 2013 rally.

"There is concern ahead of the Fed meeting -- we've had good GDP and employment data and now this budget deal alleviates some stress -- when we were expecting the taper earlier this year my gut said they wouldn't due to dysfunction in Washington -- but now that pressure has been relieved," Jon Sablowsky, head of trading at Brownstone Investment Group in New York said in a phone interview.
