Stocks are little-changed before key economic data, consolidating after two days of gains.
European markets are up slightly, and Asian indexes were mostly positive in the overnight session. Commodities and currencies are modestly bullish.
Equities have climbed in the first two sessions after the long Labor Day weekend, supported by strong economic data from China, Europe, and the United States. While some worries have arisen from the possibility of military action against Syria, there is still no certainty about when–or if–strikes will occur. The delay has allowed the longer-term bullish trend in the S&P 500 to resume.
