US stocks head higher at the end of another bumpy week


- Advertisment -

Stocks are rising broadly on Wall Street, putting the market on track to end a choppy week of trading slightly higher. If the gains hold, the S&P 500 would mark its third straight weekly gain. The benchmark index was up 0.5% in midday trading, clawing back all its losses from a day earlier. Retailers and other companies that rely on spending by consumers were doing well after the government reported that retail sales rose in September for the fifth straight month and well above the rate that economists were expecting. European markets were also higher while Asian markets ended mixed.
