    S&P 500 Rises to Record on Jobless Claims Data, Earnings. U.S. stocks rose, sending the Standard & Poor's 500 index to an intraday record, amid better-than-estimated earnings and jobless claims as investors weighed testimony from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

    Global shares hit record highs as Bernanke speaks, yen drops. Stock markets around the world extended their rally on Thursday as investors felt reassured the Federal Reserve would unwind stimulus measures with care, while the yen and the euro fell.
