FXStreet (Mumbai) - The stock markets in the US advanced on Thursday, ending the two-day losing streak as investors cheered the upbeat domestic data. At the time of writing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was up 56 points and the S&P 500 was up 9.61 points. The Nasdaq had gained 33.6 points. Among the DJIA stocks, Boeing and Nike were leading the way with 1.9% and 1.5% gains respectively. Meanwhile, UnitedHealth stock lost 3.7%, followed by a 0.37% decline in DuPont. The data released earlier today showed the consumer price index stalled as opposed to an expected drop of 0.1%, while the weekly jobless claims fell to near four-decade lows. However, the upbeat did little to push up March 2016 Fed rate hike bets. The focus now shifts to Fed speak - St. Louis Fed President James Bullard (non-voting member), New York Fed President William Dudley (voting member) and Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester (non-voting member).
