Stocks higher, but volatile, after Bernanke speaks
It took a while, but investors eventually decided they liked what they heard from Ben Bernanke, and stock indexes rose enough Friday to put them into positive territory for August.
Stocks gyrated after the Federal Reserve chairman spoke Friday morning. They first gave up their morning gains, then bolted to their highs for the day, before settled in-between.
The Dow Jones industrial average ended the day up 90.13 points at 13,090.84.
