U.S. stocks rebound from new bear market lows, with Dow jumping over 550 points, S&P 500 aiming to snap longest losing streak since February 2020 in final hour of trade

U.S. stock indexes traded higher in the final hour of trading on Wednesday with Dow climbing over 550 points and S&P 500 attempting to snap its longest losing streak since February 2020. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced by 2% and the S&P 500 gained 2.1%, while the Nasdaq Composite rose 2.1%. The rally received some support from a sharp fall in Treasury yields and the surprise intervention from the Bank of England to help stabilize roiling markets following last Friday's government budget announcements. The U.K. central bank Wednesday committed to buying long-term bonds and "restoring orderly market conditions". 3:31 p.m. Sept. 28, 2022

U.S. stocks extend losses in final hour of trading, Dow down nearly 200 points

U.S. stocks traded lower in the final hour of trading on Wednesday with three indexes turning lower after morning gains. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 184 points and the S&P 500 lost 0.4%, while the Nasdaq Composite declined by 0.1%. Investors were struggling to find their footing after three benchmark indexes Tuesday saw their worst daily losses since June 2020 as August's disappointing inflation data likely implied another historically large interest-rate hike from the Federal Reserve. Earlier Wednesday, the August producer-price index, or PPI, which measures the cost of wholesale goods and services, dropped 0.1% in August, mostly due to lower gasoline prices. Core PPI, a separate measure of wholesale prices that excludes volatile food and energy costs, rose by 0.2% in August. 3:28 p.m. Sept. 14, 2022

U.S. stocks sharply higher in final hour of trade as Nasdaq aims to snap longest losing streak since 2016

U.S. stocks traded higher in the final hour of trading on Wednesday with Dow climbing over 450 points and Nasdaq attempting to snap a seven-day losing streak. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up by 1.5% and the S&P 500 gained by around 1.9%, while the Nasdaq Composite advanced 2.2%. The Fed's Beige Book survey showed the U.S. economy grew slightly through the end of August, but the outlook for future economic growth "remained generally weak" because of rising interest rates and nagging labor and supply shortages. Federal Reserve Vice Chair Lael Brainard, the No.2 official at the central bank, said that the Fed will need to raise the policy rate further and keep them at high levels for some time to help bring inflation down. 3:23 p.m. Sept. 7, 2022

U.S. stocks mostly higher in final hour of trading, with Dow, S&P 500 attempting to snap 4-day losing streak

The two-year Treasury yield hit a fresh 15-year high at 3.528%, while the 10-year Treasury yield climbed to 3.266%, its highest level since late June. Rising bond yields also push the U.S. dollar to a 20-year high. Economists expect the August employment report, due Friday morning, to show the creation of 318,000 jobs.

U.S. stocks extend losses in final hour of trading, putting them on pace for four-day losing streak

U.S. stocks headed lower in the final hour of trading on Wednesday, threatening to extend a losing streak to four sessions as Wall Street closes the books on a choppy August. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down by 0.5% and the S&P 500 was off by around 0.4%, while the Nasdaq Composite lost 0.2%. The choppy trading on Wednesday came after the ADP figure came in below forecasts, showing the U.S. private sector employers added 132,000 jobs in August. The August employment report scheduled for release on Friday is expected to show the economy added 318,000 jobs, far fewer than the 528,000 new jobs that were created in July.

Apple planning rugged version of its smartwatch with bigger screen: report

Apple Inc. is giving its smartwatch a bigger facelift, with the largest display thus far and a larger battery and "rugged metal casing," Bloomberg reported late Wednesday, citing sources. The new watch will be designed for extreme sports enthusiasts, and will boast a screen that's nearly 2 inches across. Apple will also roll out a new standard Apple Watch Series 8 that will maintain the current 1.9-inch screens. The bigger screen would allow for a user to display simultaneous fitness metrics and the strong metal used for the casing will be tougher, along with a shatter-resistant screen. An Apple spokesman decline to offer Bloomberg a comment on plans for the new rugged smartwatch.
