The Dow Jones Industrial Average today (Thursday) gained 82 points and broke a three-day losing streak. However, the markets pared gains in the afternoon on concerns of falling oil prices, which are hovering near seven-year lows. Investors are also preparing for next week's Fed Open Market Committee meeting, where members of the U.S. central bank will decide whether to raise interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade.
