Stocks struggled for direction on Wednesday, trading on both sides of the aisle before settling mostly lower. Alphabet's (GOOGL) earnings miss, combined with Microsoft's (MSFT) sales warning, weighed heavily on the tech sector, culminating in steep losses for the tech-heavy Nasdaq. The S&P 500 settled sharply lower as well, joining the latter in snapping a three-day win streak. Meanwhile, the Dow finished just above breakeven despite being up 300 points at its session highs, but still extended its rally for a fourth consecutive session.

Gold Prices Settle at Roughly 2-Week High

Oil prices settled higher on Wednesday, thanks to a weekly drop of 1.5 million barrels in U.S. gas supplies, as well as weakness in the U.S. dollar. November-dated crude added $2.59, or 3%, to finish at $87.91 per barrel.

A weaker U.S. dollar also helped gold finish higher, while cooling Treasury yields also helped the yellow metal nab its best settlement in roughly two weeks. December-dated gold rose $11.20, or 0.7%, to close at $1,669.20 an ounce.
