NEW YORK -- U.S. stocks were hardly changed Thursday as the market continues the small moves it's made in the last few weeks.
European stocks rose and the British pound slid after the Bank of England moved to shore up the British economy after the nation's vote to leave the European Union.
KEEPING SCORE: The Dow Jones industrial average lost 25 points, or 0.1 percent, to 18,330 as of 2:22 p.m. Eastern time.
The report for June was stronger than expected, but that followed shockingly weak job growth in May.
STIMULUS IN THE UK: The Bank of England cut interest rates to new lows and unveiled a raft of stimulus measures that include resuming a bond-buying program to pump money into the economy and offering cheap loans to banks.
The measures seemed to exceed investors' expectations, and the bank said the measures could be expanded later if it proves necessary.
