Container makers were some of the day’s biggest gainers, and metal packaging maker Ball Corp. rose 12 percent. Bank stocks fell.

Callaway Golf jumped nearly 4 percent after sporting goods giant Nike surprised Wall Street by saying it will stop making golf equipment like clubs, golf balls and bags.

U.S. crude oil rose 2.7 percent, and the bond yield on the 10-year Treasury slipped to 1.50 percent.
