Stocks traded higher Thursday, recovering some declines from a day earlier, as traders continued to fixate on dimming prospects of more stimulus before the election. Third-quarter corporate earnings results rolled in mixed, and a new report weekly jobless claims came in better-than-feared.

Financial stocks led the gains as they usually do when there are signs of economic progress. The U.S. Department of Justice continues to flash its badge, wringing a $2.9 billion settlement out of Goldman Sachs for its part in the 1MDB scandal in Malaysia (more below).
