NYSE Closes on Positive Note

NEW YORK (AP) - Stocks have ended an erratic session little changed after investors spent the day tracking the euro's moves against the dollar.

A drop and subsequent rebound in the euro Monday has steered the Dow Jones industrial average from a loss of 184 points at midday to a gain of about 6 points by the close. The euro has been sliding on concerns that debt problems will undermine Europe's economic recovery.

Stocks recovered in afternoon trading after the euro stabilized.

The Dow is up 6 at 10,623. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is up 1 at 1,137. The Nasdaq composite index is up 7 at 2,354.

Three stocks fell for every two that rose on New York Stock Exchange. Volume totaled 1.4 billion shares compared with 1.5 billion Friday.
