Stocks Eke Out Slim Gains, Dow Flirts With Record High

The stock market closed higher for a second straight session. Stocks ended barely on the plus side as today's Veterans Day holiday limited data and shuttered bond trading, which combined with last week's rally, fostered a lethargic and range-bound session. The Dow Industrials hugged a razor-thin 54 point range, stalling just 6 points below the record high. The Nasdaq shrugged off pressure from momentum and social-media stocks; it closed with very slim gains thanks to gains in Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ ) and a rebound in Twitter ( TWTR ) from early profit-taking pressure.
