    The market started the day off lower. It looked ready to continue yesterday’s decline, following disappointing earnings results from a few retailers. However, stocks bounced back after the first hour of trading, largely on an improved trade outlook . Indeed, a report stated that the U.S. and China are working harder to come to a truce at the G20 meeting at the end of this month. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose steadily on these reports, climbing by as many as 275 points by mid-afternoon. The S&P 500 and NASDAQ also followed suit, with the latter outperforming due to the strong performance of technology stocks. All told, the Dow rose around 0.8%, 209 points, on the day.

    The stock market traded opened higher today, as good economic news and strong earnings releases were recorded. However, the broader markets enjoyed these early gains for only a short time, as equity prices fell throughout the majority of the day, reaching its nadir in the early afternoon. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by as many as 350 points at its lowest point, while the S&P 500 and NASDAQ traded lower in tandem. In addition, Dow component Apple Inc. (AAPL – Free Apple Stock Report) briefly entered bear-market territory. However, after 2:00 pm (EDT), the trading became choppy and the declines reversed course a bit. All told, the Dow ended down 206 points, or 0.8%.

    After taking a beating on Monday, stocks started today’s session slightly to the upside. However, the move was short-lived as trading soon became choppy, and the major U.S. indexes then succumbed to a modest afternoon selloff.
