Stocks ended slightly lower Thursday after a volatile session, while bond yields fell after a highly successful 30-year Treasury bond auction. The Dow Jones industrial average erased an early 52-point deficit and briefly moved higher, but it closed 9.33 points lower at 7,683.24, about 32 points shy of a full recovery from its 554-point plunge Oct. 27. It was the second straight day that the Dow fell short of a complete rebound.
