Wall Street finished a choppy session strong today. Despite a nearly triple-digit deficit at its session lows, the Dow finished modestly higher for a fourth-straight day. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq secured four-day win streaks as well, the latter's fourth win in the last five trading days.

Trading was volatile today as U.S. consumer inflation figures came in below estimates, while all eyes are on tomorrow's consumer price index (CPI) report for September. Elsewhere, the 10-year Treasury yield jumped towards the end of the session after bond dealers' buying at today's auction was lower than usual.

  • Why this alternative energy stock broke out today.
  • Plus, a rare occurrence for the SPX; Exxon's crude move; and CSX's bull note.
