During early U.S. trade, the Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 0.49%, the S&P 500 index climbed 0.50%, while the Nasdaq Composite index rose 0.35%. Speculation that the U.S. central bank will begin to taper its asset purchase program continued following last week’s upbeat U.S. jobs data and after ratings agency Standard & Poor’s revised its long-term outlook on the U.S. credit rating to stable from negative on Monday, citing an improving economic outlook.
But the initial euphoria was short lived.
By 10:15 the markets slide into negative territory. From Reuters:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks pared early gains and the Nasdaq turned negative on Wednesday as investors continued to mull how soon central banks will begin to scale back supportive measures.
