Monday Stocks Up 154 Points

Now at 9,819

The Associated Press
The stock market is advancing after the market’s worst week since early July.
A rise was to be expected Monday after the stock market’s latest rally stalled in response to disappointing housing and manufacturing data. Investors are trying to decide whether it’s wise to commit much money to the market while the economic recovery looks more tentative.
Investors feel they got little direction over the weekend from leaders of the Group of 20 nations, who said they would keep stimulus plans.
In early minutes of trading, Dow Jones industrial average is up 42.10, or 0.4 percent, at 9,707.29. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index is up 5.30, or 0.5 percent, at 1,049.68. The Nasdaq composite index is up 13.11, or 0.6 percent, at 2,104.03.
