Stocks Market Struggles for Direction
U.S. stocks were little changed in midday trading on Monday, with the technology sector staging a rebound, though ongoing turmoil in Turkey limited investors’ appetite for riskier assets. While the U.S. doesn’t have much direct economic exposure to the country, instability in the region sparked concerns that its problems could spill over to other parts of the world, building on the uncertainty surrounding trade policy between the U.S. and its major trading partners.
