    Stocks Tick Higher Ahead of Inflation Report Advertisment
    Stocks traded higher on Tuesday as traders looked for clarity on future Federal Reserve policy moves after April's producer price index rose more than expected.
    The Dow Jones Industrials gained 64.75 points to 39,496.26.
    The S&P 500 picked up 11.18 points to 5,232.60.
    The NASDAQ strengthened 69.74 points to 16,457.98.
    Shares of GameStop soared 63%, extending their rally from Monday, when they gained 74%.
    The producer price index reading for April came in above estimates, putting a damper on expectations that the Federal Reserve would begin cutting rates later this year as inflation weakens. The PPI gained 0.5% from April, higher than the 0.3% that economists polled by Dow Jones had anticipated.
    Prices for the 10-year Treasury gained a bit of ground, pushing yields down to 4.46% from Monday's 4.49%. Treasury prices and yields move in opposite directions.
    Oil prices sank 60 cents to $78.52 U.S. a barrel.
    Gold prices soared $12.70 to $2,355.70.
