Market recap: Stocks tried to find some stability after last week's losses, posting modest gains as strength in the energy, materials and tech sectors overshadowed weak housing data. Gold recouped a bit of its losses, gaining 1.8% to settle at $1,421, while crude oil added 0.8% to $88.76. But copper fell again after Goldman cuts its forecast. Treasurys rose, sending 10-year yields down to 1.69%.
