Dow Emerges From Red Territory; S&P 500 Settles Lower

Wall Street began the week quietly, with investors likely in a holding pattern until after tomorrow's consumer price index (CPI) reading for February. The Dow still managed to reverse its midday triple-digit losses and nabbed a small gain, however, while both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq settled below breakeven. Amid this hesitancy, the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) settled at its highest level in more than two weeks and marked is fifth daily gain in six.
