The Dow closed up 96 points at 15,509.21. The Nasdaq added 22 points to finish at 3,928.96. The S&P 500 completed the session up six points at 1,752.07. This week is a busy one for corporate earnings, with about a third of the companies in the S&P 500 index reporting results.

The number of people filing for unemployment dropped last week by 12,000, although the less volatile four-week average jumped by almost as much.
 
Twitter has set its IPO price. The microblogging site Thursday proposed $17 to $20 a share when it goes public, likely next month.  It hopes to sell at least 70,000 shares.
