WASHINGTON – Wall Street edged forward during trading yesterday with each of the three major composites posting gains of nearly half a percent. This came despite a report showing consumer confidence at its lowest point in seven months. The S&P 500 led the charge with a 0.49 percent (5.54 points) gain, followed closely by the Dow Jones (0.43 percent, 46.10 points) and NASDAQ (0.41 percent, 9.82 points).
