(Newser) – Stocks are ending a wobbly day slightly higher on Wall Street as traders wait for more news on trade talks between the US and China, the AP reports. Gains for technology companies and banks outweighed losses in energy and other sectors Thursday. Apple rose 1.5% and Occidental Petroleum lost 1.2%. The sideways trading came as investors looked ahead to a key government report on jobs Friday. The S&P 500 rose 4 points, or 0.2% to 3,117. The index is on track for a losing week, but it's still up 24% for the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 28 points, or 0.1%, to 27,677. The Nasdaq rose 4 points, less than 0.1%, to 8,570.
