Nasdaq Turns Positive for 2015

Stocks traded about 1% higher Monday, attempting to further a recent recovery from correction levels, as investors awaited earnings and concerns from Friday’s jobs report on the timing of a rate hike.

The Dow Jones industrial average gained more than 100 points.

The Nasdaq composite came back into positive territory for 2015. The Dow and S&P500 stayed in negative territory for the year so far.

All three major averages gained to come within 10 percent of their 52-week highs, out of correction territory. The small-cap Russell 2000 remained in correction mode, about 12 percent from its 52-week high.
