Stocks Fall, Oil Prices Rise as Trading Remains Volatile

US stocks fell in morning trading, while oil prices rose, as talks between Russia and Ukraine yielded little progress and inflation readings reached a new 40-year high.

The S&P 500 declined about 0.9% Thursday, while the tech-focused Nasdaq Composite Index fell 1.6%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was about 0.7%, or 231 points, lower. All three indexes broke a four-session losing streak Wednesday, when oil prices declined from recent highs but remained above $ 100 a barrel.
