U.S. stocks ended the holiday-shortened week in subdued fashion Thursday, recovering from early losses after new jobless-claims data suggested that layoffs have recently increased more than previously thought.  The S&P 500 climbed 14.64 points, or 0.4%, to 4105.02 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average inched up 2.57 points, or less than 0.1%, to 33485.29. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite rose 91.09 points, or 0.8%, to 12087.96. The stock market will be closed Friday, when the March jobs report will be released, while the bond market will be open for an abbreviated session. Stocks showed little momentum in either direction this week after notching sizable gains last week. Investors remain optimistic that recent strains in the banking sector won’t lead to a full-blown crisis and are also cheered by signs that the Federal Reserve may be nearly done raising interest rates. But they remain on edge about the economic outlook, with recent data providing some cause for concern. (MarketWatch – edited by QPI)
