The major averages opened lower after manufacturing data from China and the eurozone disappointed and weekly jobless claims fell less than expected. However, positive data on existing home sales, leading economic indicators and Philadelphia-area manufacturing activity helped the averages to stage a recovery by late morning trading. Thereafter, the averages hovered mostly above the unchanged line before closing higher. The Dow Industrials ended up 33.27 points or 0.19 percent at 17,719 and the S&P 500 Index closed 4.03 points or 0.20 percent higher at 2,053, with both closing at fresh highs.
