Market recap: Entering a cooling-off period after the recent run-up, stocks eked out small gains after a rise in consumer confidence offset weakness in home prices and a mixed bag of earnings reports. Despite strength in the dollar, most commodities rose. Treasurys fell, pushing the 10-year yield to 2.64%. NYSE gainers and decliners finished roughly even.
