The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - BUSINESS -

NEWYORK » U.S. stocks closed slightly higher Thurs­day, as volatil­ity con­tin­ues to be the dom­i­nant force in Wall Street’s tu­mul­tuous Septem­ber. The S&P 500 was 0.3% higher. The day’s head­line re­port showed that 870,000 work­ers filed for un­em­ploy­ment claims last week, a worse num­ber than econ­o­mists ex­pected. Tech­nol­ogy stocks ended up as the big­gest gain­ers, and only health care sec­tor stocks fell. The mar­ket’s mo­men­tum has shifted with lightning speed re­cently, of­ten chang­ing di­rec­tion by the hour.
