New York, NY (AP) - Stocks are having a mixed close after spending most of the day in the red.

The Dow is finishing up 20 points to 13,146. It rallied in the final minutes of trading after being down as much as 93 points at its low point.

The broader Standard & Poor's 500 and the Nasdaq composite index are both down. The S&P 500 fell two points to 1,403. The Nasdaq fell 10 points to 3,095.

Declining stocks led advancers by about 3-to-2. Volume was lighter than average at 3.8 billion shares.

The government reported some good news about the U.S. economy, including lower weekly unemployment claims. But investors were also reminded of continuing problems in Europe, as workers in Spain protested government spending cuts.
