(AP) - FED WATCH: Stock indexes wobbled in early trading Tuesday, then turned higher just before noon. That's when news crossed that James Bullard, a Federal Reserve official, told an audience that the Fed should stick with its bond-buying effort to bolster the economy.
NEXT UP: On Wednesday, the Fed will release minutes from its most recent policy meeting and Chairman Ben Bernanke will go before Congress.
FINAL SCORE: The Dow Jones industrial average rose 52.30 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,387.58. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 2.87 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,669.16. Both are at all-time highs.
