U.S. stocks moved higher in Monday trading, as the market attempted to recover from its worst week since mid-January.

It’s hard to believe that the first quarter of 2015 is almost over, but tomorrow will mark the end of March. As of the start of this week, the S&P is barely (0.1%) above even for the year, while the Dow has lost ground.

Investors are preparing for a shorter week, as the Good Friday holiday will close stock and bond markets. Payrolls and employment data will provide the data highlight of the week.

Monday saw data on homes sales, personal income and consumer spending encourage investors. Last week’s tensions in the Middle East eased some over the weekend.

As of 3:5o p.m., here are Monday’s numbers from Wall Street:

Dow Jones Industrial Average: 17,985.95 (+273.29) 

NASDAQ: 4,947.57 (+56.35) 

S&P 500: 2,086.51 (+25.49)
