Stocks close higher for the 2nd consecutive day. Up and down session for the major indices

Stocks turned back lower after ECB sources comments that a 75 basis point hike is not ruled out for October. Today the central bank increased rates by 75 basis points the largest increase since the start of the common currency.

Those declines were whittled away into the close.
