It was the fifth straight day of losses for both the Dow and S&P. That's the worst stretch for both since a six-day losing streak in May. With the US economy sluggish, there was little for investors to hold on to as the Dow closed down 48 points at 12,604.
The rally started early and gathered force in the afternoon. The charge turned the Dow positive for 2012 and erased the biggest loss of the year less than a week after it happened to close at 12,414..
The Dow rose about 38 points, with DuPont rising and Verizon falling. The Nasdaq rose about 15 points.
