Stocks are mostly higher this morning, as investors eyed declines in oil prices and remained uncertain ahead of the key Federal Reserve meeting next week.

The major averages reversed opening losses to attempt slight gains.

Energy briefly fell more than 1.5 percent to lead nearly all S&P 500 sectors lower.

Oil trimmed losses after earlier falling about 3 percent or more after Goldman Sachs became the latest bank to cut price forecasts. Brent crude held about 2 percent lower near $47.80 a barrel and WTI crude traded about 1.7 percent lower to above $45 a barrel after earlier falling more than 3 percent.
