U.S. stocks ended another roller-coaster day mostly higher Thursday, making up just a fraction of the ground they lost in a huge plunge the day before.
Still, there were signs that investors remain jittery, as prices for safe-play assets like government bonds and utilities rose. The yield on 10-year Treasury fell to 1.52% from 1.58% a day earlier, another big drop.
