11/13/2012 11:20 AM ET
After moving notably lower at the open, stocks have shown a substantial turnaround over the course of morning trading on Tuesday. The major averages have bounced well off their lows for the session and into positive territory.
While lingering concerns about the looming fiscal cliff and the ongoing difficulties in Europe helped to drag stocks lower at the start of trading, selling pressure waned not long after the open.
Traders subsequently looked to pick up stocks at reduced levels, with the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 rebounding after hitting their lowest intraday levels in over three months.
Telecom stocks have shown a strong move to the upside on the day, driving the NYSE Arca Telecom Index up by 1.2 percent. AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) are posting notable gains.
Considerable strength has also emerged among natural gas, retail, and airline stocks, while most of the major sectors are showing only modest moves.
The major averages have recently pulled back off their highs for the session but are currently holding on to gains. While the Nasdaq is up just 0.73 points or less than a tenth of a percent at 2,904.99, the Dow is up 67.70 points or 0.5 percent at 12,882.78 and the S&P 500 is up 7.01 points or 0.5 percent at 1,387.04.

With traders expressing continued concerns about the looming fiscal cliff, stocks moved to the downside at the start of trading on Tuesday. The major averages all slid into negative territory after ending the previous session nearly flat.
The major averages have recently climbed off their lows for the young session but remain in the red. The Dow is down 22.12 points or 0.2 percent at 12,792.96, the Nasdaq is down 16.06 points or 0.6 percent at 2,888.20 and the S&P 500 is down 4.32 points or 0.3 percent at 1,375.71.
The initial weakness on Wall Street was partly due to concerns about whether lawmakers will be able to reach an agreement that will avoid the significant tax increases and government spending cuts currently set to take effect at the end of the year.
While members of both parties have called for compromise on the issue, recent statements suggest that a continued disagreement over taxes on the wealthy could lead to continued gridlock on Capitol Hill.
Traders are also keeping an eye on developments in Europe, where finance ministers agreed to give Greece two extra years to meet its budget targets.
After a meeting in Brussels on Monday, Eurogroup chair Jean-Claude Juncker also revealed that the ministers will hold another meeting next week to decide on providing the next tranche of Greek aid.
Peter Boockvar, managing director at Miller Tabak, said, "Markets this morning are worried about how European officials plan on further funding Greece with extra money to bide them over for a few more years."
Early weakness has emerged among software stocks, with Microsoft (MSFT) posting a notable loss after announcing that Windows and Windows Live President Steven Sinofsky will be leaving the company Shares of Microsoft are down by 3.5 percent after hitting their worst intraday level in over ten months.
Electronic storage, gold, and brokerage stocks are also seeing notable weakness, although selling pressure has waned since the start of trading.
In overseas trading, stock markets across the Asia-Pacific region moved mostly lower during trading on Tuesday. Japan's Nikkei 225 Index edged down by 0.2 percent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index fell by 1.1 percent.
The major European markets have also moved to the downside on the day. While the U.K.'s FTSE 100 Index is down by 0.7 percent, the French CAC 40 Index is down by 0.9 percent, and the German DAX Index is down by 1.1 percent.
In the bond market, treasuries are moving moderately higher, extending a recent upward trend. As a result, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, is down by 2.8 basis points at 1.583 percent.

Canadian stocks ended marginally lower Monday, on continued investor concerns over the impact of the U.S. fiscal cliff with impending tax hikes and spending cuts for the U.S. economy beginning next January, unless a deal is reached between the two parties.
Investors also weighed the financial turmoil in Greece with concern as the beleaguered nation's debt repayment deadline draw closer, and uncertainty over aid from international lenders continue to persist.
Nevertheless, the main index made some gains on some upbeat macroeconomic data out of China, posting a huge merchandise trade surplus in October.
The S&P/TSX Composite Index closed Monday at 12,191.46, down 5.34 points or 0.04 percent. The index touched an intraday high of 12,239.56 and a low of 12,186.99.

The European markets bounced back from early weakness on Tuesday and ended the session with modest gains. The failure of the Eurogroup and the International Monetary Fund to reach an agreement on the Greek bailout at yesterday's meeting in Brussels weighed on investors. The unexpected decline in German ZEW economic sentiment and weak financial results from companies like Vodafone and E.ON also had a negative impact.
Euro area finance ministers will hold an extraordinary meeting again on November 20 to finalize the payment of the next tranche of Greek aid, Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of Eurogroup said after chairing the meeting in Brussels late Monday.
Finance ministers granted Greece two extra years to meet its budget targets, although they indicated that they will hold more negotiations before nailing down a new deal, Juncker said. The additional time would leave a funding hole of around EUR 32.6 billion through 2016.
It is now unclear whether the International Monetary Fund will take part in the contribution to Greece. IMF chief Christine Lagarde said she did not agree with Juncker. She said the appropriate timetable to reduce Greece debt to 120 percent is by 2020.
The Euro Stoxx 50 index of eurozone bluechip stocks increased by 0.84 percent, while the Stoxx Europe 50 index, which includes some major U.K. companies, added 0.46 percent.
The DAX of Germany rose by 0.01 percent and the FTSE 100 of the U.K. advanced by 0.33 percent. The CAC 40 of France gained 0.56 percent and the SMI of Switzerland climbed by 0.39 percent.
In Frankfurt, E.ON sank by 12.39 percent. The utility reported a third quarter loss and withdrew its 2013 forecast, citing economic uncertainties and the structural changes in the energy industry. Peer RWE also declined by 1.83 percent.
K+S fell by 4.69 percent. The specialty fertilizer firm currently expects full-year 2012 adjusted earnings per share and revenues at the lower end of its prior outlook range.
Kabel Deutschland, which reported quarterly results, lost 1.08 percent. Nordex gained 5.30 percent, after the company reported a higher third-quarter profit.
In London, Vodafone declined by 2.46 percent. The telecom giant reported a loss for the first half of the year, amid hefty impairments.
ITV, which issued an interim management statement, surged by 8.99 percent. Sonova surged by 8.49 percent in Zurich. The company reported impressive financial results, with a 44% increase in net income for the first half of the year.
German economic sentiment worsened in November, reflecting investors' subdued expectations amid recessionary developments in the euro area, data from a survey by the Centre for European Economic Research showed Tuesday.
The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment declined unexpectedly by 4.2 points to -15.7 in November. The reading was forecast to improve to -10 and marked the first drop since August.
France's current account deficit decreased from the previous month in September, data released by the Bank of France showed Tuesday. On a seasonally adjusted basis, the current account deficit dropped to EUR3.3 billion in September from EUR3.6 billion in August, data showed.
U.K. annual inflation accelerated more than expected on a surge in university tuition fees and food prices in October and drifted inflation away from the central bank's 2 percent target. Inflation rose to 2.7 percent in October, the highest since May, from 2.2 percent in September, the Office for National Statistics said Tuesday. Inflation was forecast to rise to 2.4 percent.
Residential property prices in the United Kingdom increased at slower pace in September, defying economists' forecast for a faster growth, data released Tuesday by the Office for National Statistics showed.
The house price index increased 1.7 percent on an annual basis in September, slower than the 1.9 percent gain recorded in August, which was revised up from 1.8 percent. Economists had forecast a faster growth of 2 percent.

The Japanese stock market opened on a firm note, with investors indulging in some bargain hunting after recent losses. Expectations of some stimulus from the Japanese central bank and the yen's decline against the U.S. dollar too contributed to the positive start.

U.S. crude oil snapped a two-day gain to settle lower Monday, mostly on investor concerns over the looming U.S. fiscal cliff with spending cuts and tax hikes indicated in January if a deal is not reached. There were continued concerns over the financial turmoil in Greece as its debt repayment dates draw closer and uncertainty over aid from international lenders remain. Economic growth worries continued to persist after some poor numbers out of Japan show its gross domestic product in the third quarter declined.
Light Sweet Crude Oil futures for December delivery shed $0.50 or 0.6 percent to close at $85.57 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange Monday.
Crude prices scaled a high of $86.54 a barrel intraday and a low of $85.27.
Last week, oil rebounded from its four-month low amid some upbeat macroeconomic data from China, the second largest oil consuming nation.
Meanwhile, the IEA in its closely watched annual World Energy Outlook released Monday said the U.S. will overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's largest oil producer in about eight years from now. Oil demand will increase by 14 percent between now and 2035 to reach 99.7 million barrels a day, the IEA said.

In economic news, Germany's wholesale price inflation accelerated to the highest level in eleven months in October, data released by the Federal Statistical Office showed. The wholesale price index increased 4.6 percent on an annual basis in October, faster than the 4.2 percent gain seen in September. Economists were looking for a 4.9 percent rise. The latest growth, the fourth in a row, was the fastest since November 2011, when prices advanced 4.9 percent.
Elsewhere, Japan's economy shrank 0.9 percent in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the previous three quarters, marking its first contraction in three quarters, the Cabinet Office said in a report. On a yearly basis, GQP dropped 3.5 percent - slightly worse than expectations for a contraction of 3.4 percent.
Separately, data out of China showed the nation posted a merchandise trade surplus of $31.99 billion in October - blowing past expectations for $27.15 billion after coming in at $27.67 in September. Exports surged 11.6 percent year-over-year to $175.57 billion, beating forecasts for a 10 percent gain.
During the week, investor focus will be on the Commerce Department's retail sales report for October, the results of the manufacturing surveys by the New York Federal Reserve and the Philadelphia Federal Reserve, the Federal Reserve's industrial production report for October, the FOMC minutes and the weekly jobless claims data.
In focus will also be the crude oil inventories data from the American Petroleum Institute due Tuesday and the Energy Information Administration's weekly oil report Wednesday.
