NEW YORK, May 10 (UPI) -- Stocks on Wall Street closed mixed Thursday with the Dow Jones industrial average up 64 points after a six-day slump.

By close of trading, the DJIA gained 19.98 points, or 0.16 percent, to 12,855.04, ending a six-day losing streak. The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite index lost 1.07 points, or 0.04 percent, to 2,933.64. The Standard & Poor's 500 index added 3.41 points, or 0.25 percent, to 1,357.99.

On the New York Stock Exchange, 1,894 stocks advanced and 1,127 declined on a volume of 3.5 billion shares traded.

The 10-year benchmark treasury note rose 3/32 to yield 1.865 percent.

The euro rose to $1.2934 from Wednesday's $1.293. Against the yen, the dollar rose to 79.92 yen from 79.63 yen.
