    Stocks are closing with modest gains following last week's turbulence. All three main stock indexes ended higher today. The S&P rose 17 points. The Nasdaq gained 57, while the Dow managed a small gain of 19 points after spending most of the day in the red. The Dow was held back by a sharp decline in IBM, which reported disappointing results.

    Doctors who survived Ebola in Nigeria are crediting heavy doses of fluids with saving their lives. The World Health Organization today declared Nigeria to be free of Ebola -- a rare victory against the disease that is ravaging West Africa. In the end, Africa's most populous country had just 20 Ebola cases, including eight deaths. Officials say the success is due to strong tracking and isolation of people exposed to the virus -- along with aggressive rehydration of infected patients.

    The World Trade Organization has rejected U.S. rules requiring labels on packaged steaks, ribs and other cuts of meat identifying where the animals were born, raised and slaughtered. In a ruling today, the WTO says the requirements put Canadian and Mexican livestock at an unfair disadvantage. The decision comes as a defeat for consumer groups and some farmers, especially those who compete with Canadian ranchers.

    A research group says it expects China's economy to slow over the next decade. The Conference Board forecasts that growth in the world's No. 2 economy will slow to 4 percent per year between 2020 and 2025. That's well below Beijing's target of 7.5 for this year. China's growth peaked at about 14 percent in 2007, driven by exports and spending on assets such as factories and apartment buildings. China's leaders now want more growth based on Chinese consumer spending.

    It's shaping up as a relatively quiet trading day on Wall Street. The Dow is down in afternoon trading, but the broader indexes are higher. IBM is dragging the blue-chip index lower after reporting earnings that missed Wall Street's expectations. The company also missed on revenue and warns that it may not meet its profit goals for the foreseeable future. IBM is the biggest decliner in both the Dow and in the S&P 500, with shares off about 7 percent.
