Markets Dive in Last Hour, Carving New Lows


Wall Street doubled down on its losses on Thursday, just a day after financial markets closed at their lowest point in nearly six years.

In a day dominated by fear and uncertainty, financial markets plunged in late trading, carving new lows, in a melee of selling that cut across every sector of the market. Energy companies took the heaviest blows as the price of crude oil fell below $50 a barrel, and financial stocks sank sharply on fears that billions in government aid have done little to cure the financial and credit crises.

“The market can only take so many punches,” said Quincy Krosby, chief investment strategist at The Hartford. “This market needs a break. It needs clarity. The question is, when and how much?”

No one had an answer on Thursday afternoon.

The Dow Jones industrial average set another new low for the year on Thursday, shedding 444.99 points or 5.5 percent to close at 7,552.29. The wider Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index fell an even steeper 6.7 percent, adding to its losses after tumbling 6 percent on Wednesday.
After Thursday, the S.&P. index had dropped beneath its bear-market lows of 2002, and was lower than any point since 1997.

As stocks hopped from red to green and back again before beginning their final spiral, investors continued to seek cover in safe havens like Treasury notes and gold, driving those prices higher. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury dropped to 3 percent in a sign of how many investors are seeking shelters for their money.

And a new report that jobless claims had crested to their highest levels in 16 years reminded investors that the frail economy continues to weaken.
“We think it’s going to continue to go lower,” said Ryan Detrick of Schaeffer’s Investment Research. “We don’t think people are scared enough. They’re just not showing enough fear. People are numb to this, they’re almost immune to it.”

Financial shares, which took the brunt of Wednesday’s losses, continued their bad streak on Thursday. Citigroup fell by double digits for a second day, to less than $5 a share, despite news that Prince al-Walid bin Talal of Saudi Arabia was increasing his stake in the troubled banking giant to 5 percent. Citigroup closed down 26 percent.

Financial companies including J.P Morgan, the Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch all lost more than 10 percent.

Shares in America’s two largest automakers finished higher after Congressional leaders said any proposal to bail out the auto industry would fail if it were put to a vote this week. Democratic leaders from the House and Senate criticized the executives of Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, and said the automakers needed to make a more persuasive case that they would be responsible stewards of $25 billion in federal aid.

On Thursday, new government data reinforced the economic gloom on Wall Street. the Labor Department reported that new claims for unemployment benefits rose to a seasonally adjusted 542,000 last week, the highest level since July 1992. On Capitol Hill, the Senate was expected to take up a bill extending unemployment assistance to people whose benefits have expired.

Economists said the swelling jobless numbers were creating a vicious circle between Wall Street’s losses and the afflictions of the broader economy.

“The profit drag on corporate America is widening and deepening, and this is leading to more layoffs and cutbacks in capital spending, which is extending and deepening the recession,” said Stuart Schweitzer, global markets strategist for J.P. Morgan Private Bank. “We’ve gotten into a full-blown, self-feeding downturn.”

Investors sold off early Wednesday after confronting data that showed an unexpectedly large drop in consumer prices, which suggested deflation could become the newest problem for policy makers. The Dow fell more than 5 percent Wednesday while the Nasdaq fell more than 6 percent.

“The problem is there is absolutely no silver lining visible,” said Arjuna Mahendran, head of Asian investment strategy at HSBC Private Bank in Singapore. “The financial crisis may now be at its tail end and we are now in a second phase where corporate distress is the key issue. A third phase may come early next year, when emerging markets will really struggle as the crisis widens and exports continue to shrink.”

Oil prices slipped below $50 a barrel, settling at $49.62 a barrel, down 7 percent.

In Europe, the Dow Jones Euro Stoxx 50 index, a barometer of euro zone blue chips, closed down 3 percent, while the FTSE 100 index in London was down 3.2 percent. The CAC 40 in Paris declined 3.4 percent, and the DAX in Frankfurt 3 percent

Credit markets remained tight. The so-called Ted spread, the gap between yields on safe three-month United States government securities and the rate that banks charge one another for loans of the same duration, was unchanged at 2.11 percentage points. The spread is well down from its peak of 4.6 points on Oct. 10, but the improvement in the credit markets has stalled over the last two weeks. Analysts consider a level of 0.5 point to 1.0 point to be normal.

Asian markets stumbled badly. The Tokyo benchmark Nikkei 225 stock average finished 6.9 percent lower, taking its loss to the year to nearly 50 percent. Government data Thursday showed Japanese exports were down 7.7 percent in October from a year earlier, the steepest decline since December 2001. The drop contributed to Japan’s $665.8 million trade deficit.

While a drop had been expected — overseas consumers have long been cutting down on spending, and the yen’s strength against other currencies makes Japanese goods more expensive overseas — the amount of the decline does not bode well for the wider economy.

Stocks sink as oil settles under $50

(CNN) -- Global stock markets were down across the board and oil sank below $50 a barrel Thursday.

Concerns over the ailing U.S. auto industry, a 16-year high in U.S. unemployment and the Dow Jones' lowest closing price since 2003 all weighed on investors' minds.

The benchmark Dow -- which finished the previous session below 8,000 points for the first time in five years -- closed another 5.6 percent down, according to early tallies.

And the S&P 500 lost 6.7 percent to close at its lowest point since 1997. The Nasdaq also dropped 5.1 percent.

Gloomy economic forecasts and market misery have impacted heavily on oil since it reached an all-time high of $147.27 a barrel in mid-July.

Light sweet crude Thursday settled at $49.62 -- down $4 and the lowest close since May 2005.

Meanwhile the number of Americans filing for unemployment insurance surged to its highest levels in 16 years, the U.S. Department of Labor said Thursday.

The number of initial filings for state jobless benefits increased by 27,000 to 542,000 for the week ending November 15, according to government figures.

In a statement, White House press secretary Dana Perino said U.S. President George W. Bush was in favor of legislation being considered in Congress to extend benefits for the jobless.

"The recent financial and credit crisis has slowed the economy, and it's having an impact on job creation," Perino said. "The president is always concerned when anybody loses their job and wants to ensure that anybody who wants to work can find employment."

More than four million Americans were collecting unemployment benefits in the week ending November 8 -- the highest figure in 26 years.

In Europe, major indexes spent the day skulking well short of their opening prices. London's FTSE 100 was down more 130 points at the close or 3.2 percent. Both Paris' CAC and Frankfurt's DAX were also down more than 3 percent.

The selloff was more brutal still in Asia and Pacific markets, where Tokyo's Nikkei index shed 6.9 percent.

The Japanese market slumped as the country's Finance Ministry announced a yen 63.9 billion ($663 million) trade deficit in October -- the first for the month in 28 years -- after a slowing global economy cut into the nation's exports.

Seoul's KOSPI index dropped 6.7 percent on the day, while Australia's All Ordinaries index closed 4.3 percent lower and Hong Kong's Hang Seng index fell 4 percent.

"The market is fearful of the fallout from the credit crisis and the global economic slowdown," said Todd Salamone, market strategist at Schaeffer's Investment Research.

Investors are grappling with a possible bankruptcy in the automotive industry, something analysts say could have dire implications for the broader economy, as a second day of congressional hearings ended without resolution.

"The crisis of confidence is back on the front page," said Todd Morgan, senior managing director of Bel Air Investment Advisors, a Los Angeles-based firm with nearly $6 billion in assets under management.

"You need some positive catalyst, something, to change the attitude of investors [and] the auto debate is hurting confidence."

Nuevo batacazo de Wall Street que cierra con una caída del 5,53%

El Ibex se deja un 2,72% en un día de pérdidas en Europa- Los inversores no ven motivos para recuperar la confianza en los mercados.- El barril de Brent baja de los 50 dólares

La Bolsa de Nueva York ha cerrado hoy con un descenso del 5,53% en el Dow Jones, tras el aumento de solicitudes de desempleo en Estados Unidos a su nivel más alto en 16 años y con el futuro de la industria automovilística estadounidense en la cuerda floja.

Según los datos disponibles al cierre, el índice, el más importante de Wall Street, bajó 442,37 puntos (5,53%) y se situó en 7.554,91 unidades, tras una sesión muy volátil. El Dow Jones, que ayer alcanzó mínimos anuales, ha llegado a situarse en positivo a media jornada pero la falta de confianza de los inversores ha vuelto a marcar una jornada negra.

Números rojos en el sector bancario

El Ibex 35ha vivido una jornada de pérdidas en la que el sector bancario ha vuelto a llevar al selectivo español a los números rojos. El índice se ha dejado un 2,72 % para quedarse en 7.988,40 puntos, por debajo de lacota de los 8.000, situación en la que se ha mantenido durante gran parte de la sesión. El sector financiero volvió a ser el protagonista de la sesión al registrar los mayores descensos.

Entre los grandes valores del mercado, Santander terminó la jornada con un retroceso del 5,55%, tras la jornada de ayer, en la que perdió casi el 10%; Bankinter cayó un 6,88%, BBVA un 3,49% e Iberdrola un 5,77%. Por su parte, Telefónica subió el 0,20%. Sacyr Vallehermosoha liderado las ganancias con un 13,23% de beneficio gracias al interés de Lukoil por su 20% en Repsol. Precisamente, la petrolera hispano argentina ha sido otro de los valores que más atención ha acaparado, pero ha terminado perdiendo el 2,51% a la espera de que evolucionen las negociaciones con la petrolera rusa.

Pérdidas en Europa y EE UU
El pesimismo sobre la economía y la debilidad del sector bancario está socavando las expectativas que apuntaban a que lo peor de la crisis financiera y la falta de confianza de los inversores estaban ya superados. En el Viejo Continente, el CAC de París retrocedía un 3,48%; el FTSE de Londres, un 3,26%, el Mib de Milán un 2,10% y el DAX alemán un 3,08%.

Antes de la apertura en Europa, el índice Nikkei de la Bolsa de Tokio ha cerrado con un retroceso del 6,89% y, tras perder 570,18 enteros, ha acabado en 7.703,04 puntos. Después de una apertura en la que se anotó un retroceso del 1,49% y de mantenerse durante toda la sesión con pérdidas superiores al 4%, el índice japonés se ha terminado contagiando de las caídas de ayer a ambos lados del Atlántico, acentuado por la depreciación del dólar y del euro frente al yen y por los malos datos del déficit comercial en Japón en el mes de octubre.

Selling Rampage Sends S&P Back to 1997

Matt Egan

With the specter of a collapse of the auto industry looming, Wall Street's bleeding spread further on Thursday, sending the S&P 500 to 11-year lows and crude oil prices plummeting below $50 a barrel.

Today’s Market

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 444.99 points, or 5.56%, to 7552.29, the broader S&P 500 lost 54.14 points, or 6.71%, to 752.44 and the Nasdaq Composite slid 70.30 points, or 5.07%, to 1316.12. The consumer-friendly FOX 50 fell 35.60 points, or 5.67%, to 591.77.

The latest damage on Wall Street came on a day that confirmed the Big Three automakers won't be receiving a bailout any time soon, jobless claims soared to 16-year highs and Citigroup (C) lost one-quarter of its market value for the second session in a row.

“I have no idea where stocks go from here. I don’t know if it’s the end of a decline or the start” of a new wave down, said Peter Boockvar, equities strategist at Miller Tabak. “I do think we are close to a bear market bounce, I just don’t know if it’s going to be from 750 [on the S&P] or 700.”
Thursday's selloff was backed up by heavy volume on the New York Stock Exchange, which saw more than 2.2 billion shares change hands.

The latest losses only add to Wall Street's recent slump as the Dow has closed in the red for nine out of the past 12 days, sending all three indexes to multi-year lows. Market sentiment has significantly deteriorated as the economic picture continues to look bleak.

“We have an awful lot of economic data that tells us day after day that it keeps getting worse and worse.,” NYSE trader Doreen Mogavero of Mogavero, Lee & Co. told FOX Business.

Not to be outdone by the drama on Wall Street, crude oil prices plummeted below $50 a barrel to hit new three-year lows, underscoring the economic anxiety hammering the markets. Crude ended in the red for the fifth consecutive trading day, settling at 49.62 a barrel, down $4.

It’s clear cash continues to flee to the relative safety of short-term government debt as the 2-year note plunged below 1% for the first time in history on Thursday.

Markets Plunge as Bailout Hopes Evaporate

Wall Street was paralyzed by the uncertainty hovering over the Big Three automakers: General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) and privately-held Chrysler LLC. Stocks rose during afternoon trading on hopes a compromise would be reached to send billions of dollars in emergency loans to the automakers.

However, that euphoria was fleeting as it became clear no resolution would be reached until next month at the earliest. Democratic leaders said the automakers will have another opportunity to make their case by submitting a plan to Congress next month when lawmakers may reconvene.

Auto execs unsuccessfully argued they urgently need cash to avoid bankruptcy filings that could be disastrous to the economy.

"Until they show us a plan, we cannot show them the money," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at a press conference.

The conflicting headlines on the auto bailout had a dizzying effect on the companies' shares. GM closed higher after plunging as much as 40% and touching 70-year lows.

Financials Meltdown Continues

The sector that has led the market down through much of this downturn faltered once again on Thursday, losing 10% of its value for consecutive days.

All eyes were on Citigroup (C), which lost one-quarter of its crumbling market value for the second day in a row, despite receiving a vote of confidence from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who upped his stake to 5%. Alwaleed is also a major shareholder in News Corp. (NWS), the parent of FOX Business.

Responding to the plunge in the company's shares, Citi execs are lobbying lawmakers and the Securities and Exchange Commission to revive the ban on short-selling of financial stocks, The Wall Street Journal reported. Citi wasn't alone as Goldman Sachs (GS), Merrill Lynch (MER) and Bank of America (BAC) all hit fresh 52-week lows.

More Economic Doom and Gloom

Wall Street was given another reminder of the weak economy after the government said initial jobless claims unexpectedly soared by 27,000 to 542,000 last week -- the highest level since July 1992. The Labor Department also said continuing claims, filed by individuals out of work for more than a week, surged by 109,000 to eclipse the 4 million mark for the first time since 1982.

Fears were also bolstered by the Conference Board's leading economic indicators index, which declined by a worse-than-expected 0.8% in October. Also, the Philly Fed said its manufacturing index plunged to its lowest level since October 1990 in this month.

The bearish reports come a day after the government said new home construction fell to the lowest rate on record while consumer prices suffered their largest monthly decline in history, sparking deflation fears.

Corporate Movers

General Electric (GE) denied reports that it is talks with sovereign wealth funds, including the Government of Singapore Investment Corp., to become stockholders and project partners with the company. GE said it is not in talks to raise capital via global investment funds or sovereign wealth funds.

JPMorgan Chase (JPM) is slashing roughly 3,000 jobs, or roughly 10% of its investment banking staff, sources confirmed to FOX Business.
Ambac Financial (ABK) soared after the bond insurer said it reached a deal to tear up $3.5 billion of its exposure to risky mortgage-backed debt by agreeing to pay $1 billion up front.

Barnes & Noble (BKS) touched 13-year lows after the bookseller issued a worse-than-expected quarterly loss and cut its full-year view. The company lost 21 cents per share, missing estimates by 5 cents and also scaled back its store opening plans for 2009.

PepsiCo (PEP) backed its 2008 earnings guidance even though its largest bottler, Pepsi Bottling (PBG), announced a restructuring plan and charges that will hurt Pepsi’s full-year earnings.

GMAC, the finance arm co-owned by General Motors (GM) and Chrysler LLC’s parent, has filed an application with the Fed to become a bank holding company. The move paves the way for GMAC to receive government rescue funds.

World Markets

European markets led the way down on Thursday as London's FTSE 100 was down 2.3% in recent trading, while Germany's DAX was down 2.9% and France's CAC fell 3.2%.

In Asia, Japan's Nikkei plunged 6.9% to close below the 8,000-point mark and Hong Kong's Hang Seng fell 4% to end below 13,000.

China fears job riots

• Story Highlights
• China warns of labor unrest and more layoffs during economic crisis
• Human resources minister says unemployment will rise
• $585 billion economic stimulus package won't kick in until 2009, he says
• China being hit by reduced demand and rising costs

BEIJING, China (CNN) -- China's job outlook is "grim," and the global financial crisis could cause more layoffs and more labor unrest until the country's economic stimulus package kicks in next year, the nation's minister of human resources and social security said Thursday.

The stimulus package, unveiled earlier this month, will pump $585 billion into rebuilding communities destroyed by the May earthquake, constructing railways, housing, airports and highways, and funding other projects.

China is most concerned about the growing labor unrest, the human resources minister, Yin Weimin, said at a news conference. The increase in unrest has paralleled the increase of business and factory closings and job losses.

Yin noted that in the past two months, some businesses, mainly smaller ones, have been forced to close or suspend production.

Several hundred taxi drivers went on strike Wednesday in Chongqing, in southwestern China, after the government said it planned to put more cabs on the district's roads, thereby increasing competition, the Gansu Daily newspaper said

And about 2,000 people rioted Monday in the impoverished northwestern province of Gansu over plans to move Longnan's city government offices, which were damaged in the May 12 Sichuan earthquake, to a nearby county.

Residents, fearing the change would reduce their property values and threaten their livelihoods, clashed with police and looted government offices, the Gansu Daily reported.

China's manufacturing sector, which produced 14 percent of the clothing, toys and footwear imported into the United States last year, has decelerated rapidly over the past few months, pulled down by a pair of factors.

First, the global economic slowdown and the subsequent drop in consumer spending stymied demand for discretionary goods made in China.
Second, Chinese manufacturers are battling rising labor and material costs at the same time that the yuan's rising value versus the dollar is making Chinese exports to the United States and elsewhere more expensive.

Because of these challenges, more than 65,000 Chinese factories have gone bankrupt this year, said Lan Hailin, professor of business strategy with the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, China.

And as overseas orders continue to shrink, he thinks the number of bankruptcies will keep rising.

The urban unemployment rate through October this year was 4 percent, lower than the government's projection of 4.5 percent.

But Yin said Thursday the jobless numbers do not include migrant rural workers -- probably the most-affected group -- because they move so frequently. There are about 150 million migrant laborers in China, mostly in cities.

Xinhua said Yin has predicted unemployment will rise in the first quarter of 2009. After that, he said, the stimulus package and other steps China has taken to boost the financial sector should boost employment, according to Xinhua.

China hopes the growth of jobs will then cool down the protests. Until then, China is bracing for more demonstrations.

Meng Jianzhu, minister of public security, was quoted by the BBC as warning police this week to be "fully aware of the challenges brought by the global financial crisis."

He said officers should be careful about how they handle "mass incidents."

*La volatilidad domina en Wall Street ante la presión de unos datos macro negativos
Nueva jornada de volatilidad en la bolsa de Nueva York que parece no encontrar una tendencia clara y tan pronto pierden un 1%, como que lo recuperan. Hoy, los indicadores macroeconómicos dejan un nuevo mal sabor de boca en el parqué y es que las peticiones de desempleo se han situado en su nivel más alto desde 1992. Tampoco ayuda el desplome que sufre la cotización de Citigroup ante el temor de que pueda sufrir más problemas con las suprime.

Ante este complicado panorama, a media sesión, el Dow Jones de industriales se apunta un 0,825, hasta los 8.062 puntos, el Nasdaq tecnológico avanza un 0,865, hasta los 1.399 puntos y el S&P 500 gana un 0,205, hasta los 808 puntos.

No compañera más fiel que la volatilidad en las últimas semanas para la bolsa de Wall Street. Si ayer los indicadores seguían tocando fondo y perdiendo el nivel de los 8.000 puntos, hoy quien esperara el rebote se está encontrando contra jornada dubitativa en la que los indicadores no muestran una tendencia clara. A media sesión, las ganancias vuelven a los marcadores, sin embargo, tal y como están los mercados no se puede aventurar cual será el color al cierre.

De momento a media sesión los indicadores conviven en el verde de las ganancias tras publicarse el peor dato de peticiones semanales de desempleo desde el año 1992, ya que se incrementaron hasta las 542.000. Por su parte, las peticiones continuadas (las que no se realizaron por primera vez) se incrementaron en 109.000, hasta los 4,01 millones.

También ha resultado peor de lo esperado el indicador de la actividad industrial en el estado de Filadelfia y publicado por la Fed. En el mes de noviembre, esta lectura se desplomó hasta los 39,3 puntos negativos, cuando los analistas esperaban que lo hicieran hasta los -35 puntos. También experimento una bajada el índice de indicadores económicos adelantados que bajó un 0,8%, frente a una previsión del 0,6%.

Dudas en torno a Citi
El componente del Dow Jones experimenta un fuerte desplome que se ha llegado a prolongar hasta el 25%, después de que se conociera que el príncipe saudí Alwaleed bin Talal, el primer accionista de Citigroup, planea elevar del 4% al 5% su participación en la entidad. El movimiento sería una señal de confianza después de que el banco fuera ayer "drásticamente castigado" por el mercado y perdiese casi un cuarto de su valor bursátil.

Sin embargo, el mercado desconfía de este movimiento y ve en el las dificultades de Citi para poder luchar contra la crisis financiera en sus balances y temen que tenga fuertes dificultades de liquidez. A media sesión, las acciones del banco se dejan un 14%.

También es protagonista General Electric. La que fuera la mayor compañía del mundo en bolsa busca ahora, después de la inyección de fondos aportada por Warren Buffett, la ayuda de al menos cuatro fondos soberanos asiáticos. El gigante industrial estadounidense, protagonista este año de dos 'profit warnings', reforzaría así su capital para afrontar la crisis. En la preapertura de Wall Street, General Electric se desploma otro 0,20%.

Por su parte, la filial financiera de General Motors, GMAC, ha presentado una solicitud a la Fed para poder obtener la autorización para la transformación en banco comercial y así poder acogerse al plan de rescate.

*WS apertura: cae Dow 0.6%, datos economía aumentan temores
Los índices en Wall Street abrieron otra jornada a la baja por cuenta del mal sentimiento que existe sobre la economía y que hoy encuentra evidencia en malos indicadores económicos, como el de solicitudes para el seguro de desempleo. Asimismo sectores como el financiero y el de compañías energéticas son castigados hoy.

Al momento de escribir esta nota, el Dow Jones baja 0.6% a 7,949 pts., el S&P's 500 cae 1.06% a 798 pts., asimismo el Nasdaq se deprecia 0.1% a 1,386 pts. El inicio de jornada ha sido volátil, y algunos inversionistas se ven atraídos por valuaciones atractivas, sin embargo, la percepción se mantiene negativa.

En el S&P`s 500, 7 de los 10 componentes se encuentran a la baja, donde sobresalen las caídas del 4.85% de las financieras y del 4.23% de las energéticas. Por su parte, en el Dow Jones 24 de las 30 acciones que lo componen se encuentran en terreno negativo, donde se destaca la baja del 25% de General Motors.

Los indicadores económicos de la mañana dejaron otra vez evidencia de que la situación de la economía es delicada, el primer dato fueron las solicitudes del seguro de desempleo que llegaron a su nivel más bajo desde 1992, por otro lado, los indicadores líderes cayeron más a lo esperado, y el índice manufacturero de la FED de Filadelfia registró su menor nivel desde 1990.

El índice de actividad manufacturera de la Reserva Federal de Filadelfia registró una caída a -39.3 en noviembre, superior a la esperada por el consenso de 38. Con la caída, el indicador llegó a su nivel más bajo desde octubre de 1990.

El índice de indicadores líderes que publica el Conference Board reportó una caída de 0.8% en octubre, y fue mayor a la baja de 0.5% que esperaba el consenso, asimismo esta lectura fue menor al incremento revisado de septiembre de 0.1%.

Aunado a los malos datos sobre la economía, se mantiene una gran atención al sector automotriz en EU. La industria lucha por conseguir un apoyo del gobierno para sortear la crisis, y representantes de algunas de las empresas más importantes, advierten que de existir alguna quiebra, las consecuencias serían muy grandes.

En noticias corporativas, GMAC la mayor financiadora de General Motors, anunció que ha enviado una aplicación a la Reserva Federal para convertirse en Banco. Asimismo la compañía anunció que ha enviado al Tesoro, una aplicación para participar del programa de compra de capital (condicionado a que se convierta en banco).

A pesar de alcanzar un nuevo mínimo de 22 meses, los precios del petróleo mantienen su caída y amenazan con posicionarse en niveles por debajo de los 50 dólares, a su vez este comportamiento presiona a las compañías energéticas. Los futuros para entrega en diciembre del crudo de referencia WTI se negocian en 50.66 dólares, lo que representa una caída de 2.96 dólares.

*Wall Street tiende al equilibrio
La Bolsa de Nueva York tendía al equilibrio al final de la mañana del jueves, impulsada por un movimiento de búsqueda de bonos luego de haber abierto la jornada en su nivel más bajo en cinco años: el Dow Jones ganaba 0,25% y el Nasdaq 0,65%.

Hacia las 16H05 GMT, el Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) ganaba 20,15 puntos, a 8.017,43 unidades y el Nasdaq 8,95 puntos, a 1.395,37.
El índice ampliado Standard & Poor's 500 retrocedía por su parte 0,93% (7,54 puntos), a 799,04 unidades.
