The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.66% rose about 117 points, or 0.5%, at 25,675, the S&P 500 index SPX, +0.82% advanced 0.4% to 2,802, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +0.86% advanced 0.4% to 7,621. Moves for stocks come as investors watch the United Kingdom after British lawmakers on Tuesday rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's revised Brexit deal in a 242-391 vote. The U.K. later Wednesday faces a second vote to on whether an exit without a pact with Europe's trade bloc can be taken off the table before a March 29 deadline.

Dow Jones Industrial Average falls more than 200 points after disappointing retail sales report

dow jones
From Mark Decambre: U.S. stocks opened solidly lower Thursday morning after lackluster economic reports overshadowed optimism over progress in U.S.-China trade negotiations. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.42% fell about 205 points to 25339, a decline of 0.8%, the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.28% fell 0.7% to reach 2,734, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +0.04% declined by 0.5% to 7,384. The retail sales report is likely to weigh on the government's official scorecard for the economy known as gross domestic product, with fears of a recession looming. Retail sales sank 1.2% in December, the U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday. It's the largest drop since September 2009, a few months after the end of the Great Recession. A note from analysts at Jefferies, immediately after the retail sales report, referred to it as "dreadful" and questioned the reliability of the data. The market had been set for gains on optimism over progress between China and the U.S. as reports indicated that Chinese President Xi Jinping would meet with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and top trade negotiator Robert Lighthizer on Friday, as the countries attempt to resolve longstanding trade differences that have roiled markets. In corporate news, shares of Dow-component Coca-Cola Co.KO, -7.33% fell after reporting revenues that were weaker than expected, while another blue-chip member, Cisco Systems Inc. CSCO, +2.72% saw its shares rise after topping analysts' average estimates.

china flag
From Mark Decambre: U.S. stock benchmarks traded at session lows late-morning Thursday after White House Adviser Larry Kudlow said a "sizable distance" remains between the U.S. and China in protracted trade negotiations. President Donald Trump's national economic council director on Thursday made his comments during an interview with Fox Business Network. Kudlow said previous talks covered "a tremendous amount of ground" but said enforcement will be very important, as well as technological and structural issues. The Dow Jones Industrial AverageDJIA, -1.41% was trading down 329 points, or 1.3%, at 25,075, the S&P 500 indexSPX, -1.51% declined by 1.4% at 2,693, while the Nasdaq Composite IndexCOMP, -1.74% retreated by 1.6% at 7,258. Longstanding trade disagreements between Beijing and Washington have been among the most crucial headwinds for the stock market in the past several months. Separately, CNBC, citing sources, reported that Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping were unlikely to meet before a March 1 deadline for tariffs to increase on Chinese goods.

nasdaq logo
From Mark Decambre: The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -1.63% on Thursday fell 2% at 6,501, touching a bear-market level, usually defined as a drop of at least 20% from a recent peak. On an intraday basis, the Nasdaq briefly fell into a bear market, slipping to a low Thursday of 6,484.04 from its Aug. 30 intraday high of 8,133.30.

Worries about a partial government shutdown also added to the downbeat sentiment. The Russell 2000 index of small-cap stocks is in bear market RUT, -1.65% while Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.99% and the S&P 500 index DJIA, -1.99% are already in correction, defined as a drop of at least 10% from a recent peak.

cboe logo
From Mark Decambre: A popular gauge of volatility on Wall Street, known as the fear index, on Thursday jumped to its highest level since February as stocks tanked on the back of mounting global-growth fears. The CBOE Volatility Index VIX, +18.76% which uses S&P 500 bullish and bearish options to calculate expectations for volatility over the coming 30 days, was at 25.73, up 24%, in recent trade, which would mark its highest level (on a closing basis) since Feb. 9, according to FactSet data. The volatility index, referring to its popular ticker symbol, tends to maintain an inverse correlation to equity prices, and the jump comes as stocks are in free-fall. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.89% was down 655 points, or 2.5%, at 24,407, coming after the blue-chip benchmark shed 800 points on Tuesday. Markets were closed on Wednesday to mark a national day of mourning for 41st U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush, who died at 94. Meanwhile, on Thursday, the S&P 500 index SPX, -1.72% was down 2.3% at 2,639, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.96% traded 1.7% lower at 7,037.
