Continue reading below

US stocks mustered the first positive five-day stretch after three weeks of declines. The market dug itself a hole at the start of the week, plunging more than 2 percent Monday. The slide began with investor anxiety over a report that manufacturing growth slowed in January, and lackluster auto sales added to the bad news. The outlook began to brighten at midweek, with a survey that showed companies added 175,000 jobs in January. Investors will have no shortage of news to watch in the coming weeks, including how Washington grapples with another debt ceiling deadline and how quickly the Fed reduces its monthly bond purchases.
