NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks are closing slightly higher as investors followed talks between Greece and its creditors.

The gains Tuesday came a day after U.S. markets had their biggest plunge of the year.

The Dow Jones industrial average gained 23 points, or 0.1 percent, to 17,619.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index gained five points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,063. The Nasdaq composite climbed 28 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,986.

European markets ended mostly lower.

Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.35 percent.
