    Stocks open slowly on Thursday, but rallied and finally put together a strong close after a few days of early gains and late selling.

    Stocks bounced above and below the break-even mark a few times yesterday before some late weakness took most indices into the red for the day. The Dow lost 27-points, while the TSP stock funds were mixed.
