Maev Kennedy

Turkish crackdown leaves refugees in limbo

Constanze Letsch
 
Wet clothes are spread out on bushes and stones. Some people have lit fires. The torn heap of a grey rubber boat lies folded up on the coast.
Outside the abandoned concrete shells of a holiday village originally built for German tourists in the 1980s, Yasin and his friends nervously await the arrival of their smuggler. Here, near the upmarket Turkish coastal town of Çeşme, hundreds of refugees brave the icy winds of early December to make their way to the Greek island of Chios, less than two miles off the Turkish coast.

Wall Street at Close Report by CNBC on December 10, 2015: Stocks Close Higher, Snap Three-Day Losing Streak Despite Oil Slide.

Stocks close higher, snap three-day losing streak despite oil slide

Evelyn Cheng, Fred Imbert
 
U.S. stocks closed higher Thursday, well off session highs in choppy trade, but mostly shaking off pressure from further decline in oil prices.
"What we really need is to see a market that can trade higher agnostic to oil prices," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities.

"Breaking that correlation with WTI ... that is a head turner," he said.
The Dow Jones industrial average traded about 90 points higher after earlier jumping 200 points. Goldman Sachs, Boeing and Chevron contributed the most to gains. The Nasdaq composite briefly gained more than 1 percent, as Apple and biotech stocks rose.

"You've got the market rebounding after a three-day steep sell-off that brought the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq (near) their 200-day moving averages, a perfect area for support," said Adam Sarhan, CEO of Sarhan Capital.
