Wall St shares up after U.S. data, technology sector leads

Sept 2 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks were up more than 1 percent
on Wednesday afternoon supported by U.S. data and technology
stocks led a rebound from Tuesday’s steep losses.

Reserve Beige Book report said U.S. labor markets were tight
enough to fuel small wage gains in some professions in recent
weeks, though some companies were already feeling a chill from
an economic slowdown in China.

Stocks rebound from China slump, strong U.S. data helps

NEW YORK, Aug 27 (Reuters) – Stock around the world rallied
on Thursday, shaking off a slump related to China growth fears,
as strong U.S. economic data boosted investor sentiment and
crude oil rebounded sharply.

All three major U.S. indexes were up less than 1 percent in
afternoon trade, trimming earlier gains, following share
rebounds in China and Europe. Increased appetite for risk sent
government bond prices and the Japanese yen down Wednesday while
the dollar advanced.

U.S. stocks snap losing streak but oil and bonds decline

NEW YORK, Aug 26 (Reuters) – Wall Street rebounded sharply
on Wednesday after six straight days of large declines caused by
China worries, while long-dated bond prices fell after a top
Federal Reserve official scaled back expectations of a September
rate increase.

The dollar rebounded for a second straight session as firmer
U.S. stocks and a recouping of some losses in European shares
reduced the need to buy safe-haven currencies such as the yen.
Oil prices fell, however, after a drawdown in U.S. crude
stockpiles was offset by a larger-than-expected build in
gasoline.

rate comments with fears about China’s slowing economy.

The benchmark S&P 500 was up 2.6 percent in afternoon
trading, helped by stronger-than-expected data on durable goods
orders and comments that appeared to make a September interest
rate hike less likely.
