Wall Street update

US shares have come off earlier highs, but are still ahead in afternoon trading. The S&P energy index was up 1% as oil prices rose on Opec supply cuts and expectations of lower US inventories.

The S&P 500 financial index gained 0.5% after five straight sessions of losses.

Apple shares were down 0.6%, having been up close to 2% at the start of the trading day. On Monday, the iPhone maker unveiled its video streaming service, a credit card and an online gaming arcade.

With less than two hours to go to the close, the Dow Jones is up 0.31% at 25,595.2, the S&P 500 has gained 0.4% to 2,809.9, and the Nasdaq has added 0.39% to 7,666.9.

Wall Street continues to climb

Wall Street's main indexes continue to move higher, as Apple and chipmakers boost technology shares, while energy companies rise on the back of higher crude oil prices.

Apple rose 1.8%, a day after the iPhone maker unveiled its video streaming service, a credit card, news service, and an online gaming arcade. Shares in the tech giant had fallen on Monday after the announcement.

All 11 major S&P sectors are trading higher, led by energy's 1.87% gain. Oil prices were supported by Opec supply cuts and expectations of lower US inventories.

The Dow Jones is up 260.97 points, or 1%, at 25,777.8. The S&P 500 is up 29.4 points, also 1%, at 2,827.8, and the Nasdaq is up 88.82 points, or 1.2%, at 7,726.3.

Wall Street hits the ground running

Wall Street stocks bounced back in early trading, with energy, technology and banking shares gaining after worries over global growth prompted a downturn in recent days.

The Dow Jones is up 1% at 25,764.7 points, while the broad-based S&P 500 gained 1.1% to 2,827.7. The Nasdaq advanced 1.3% to 7,736.8.

Analysts said there was no obvious news catalyst for the rally, but that some of the fears that hit stocks late last week seemed to be easing.

"It's just a little bit of a calming down after the panic attack Friday," said Karl Haeling of LBBW.

Wall Street slips in choppy trading session

US stocks slipped on Monday, extending the previous session's sell-off, hit by worries of a slowdown in global economic growth and as Apple shares fell.

But trading was choppy, with stocks moving back and forth between negative and positive territory during the session. Appleshares dropped 1.8% and were the biggest drag on indexes as the iPhone maker unveiled its long-awaited video streaming service.

Weak factory data from the United States, Europe and Japan on Friday led to the inversion of US Treasury yield curve for the first time since 2007, adding to fears of a global economic downturn.

The Dow Jones fell 25.14 points, or 0.1%, to 25,477.1, the S&P 500 lost 4.93 points, or 0.18%, to 2,795.7 and the Nasdaq dropped 18.23 points, or 0.24%, to 7,624.4.

In a bright spot, the consumer discretionary sector rose 0.5%, supported by gains in Home Depot and Amazon.

Wall Street turns positive

US stocks are in positive territory after falling at the open. Shares of industrial and consumer companies rose, but gains were kept in check by worries of a global slowdown.

Weak factory data from the US, Europe and Japan on Friday triggered a sell-off in US equities and also led to the inversion of US Treasury yield curve for the first time since 2007.

But on Monday Wall Street reversed early-trading losses, and the Dow Jones is now up 71.89 points, or 0.28%, at 25,574.2, and the S&P 500 up 5.04 points, or 0.18%, at 2,805.7. The Nasdaq is up 9.98 points, or 0.13%, at 7,652.6.

Wall Street stocks have ended lower, due to investor concerns about a possible global economic slowdown, following weak manufacturing data today from Europe, Japan and the US, as well as the Federal Reserve's cautious tone on interest rates earlier this week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day 1.8% lower at 25,502.32 points, while the S&P 500 dropped 1.9% to 2,800.71.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq meanwhile plunged 2.5% to 7,642.67.

Wall Street shares are now much lower due to a combination of several issues, from the inversion of the bond market yield curve, to the weak manufacturing data in many countries, to the Fed indicating it is unlikely to raise rates for the whole of 2019.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is now 373.8 points or 1.4% lower to 25,588.71, the S&P 500 is 44.2 points or 1.6% down to 2,810.06, and finally, the tech-heavy Nasdaq is now 160.8 points or 2% lower to 7,678.34.

Wall Street shares are now slightly lower, as US manufacturing data for March missed estimates, fueling fears of a slowing global economy.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is 186 points or 0.7% lower to 25,776.54. Top of the losers is sports apparel retailer Nike, which has fallen 4.6% to $83.94 after sales fell short of estimates for the first time in 12 months.

The S&P 500 is 22.8 points or 0.8% down to 2,832.14. Business solutions firm Cintas heads the losers, dropping 5% to $197.52. On Thursday, Cintas reported third quarter revenues that slightly missed analysts' estimates, although its earnings per share beat expectations.

And finally, the tech-heavy Nasdaq is just 81.5 points or 1% lower to 7,759.83. Top of the losers is Cintas, followed by portable storage maker Western Digital, which is down 3.4% to $197.32 after its stock rose on Thursday due to positive earnings results.
