HOUSTON (ICIS news)--The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost some of its gains on Friday following the House's approval of a $700bn (€504bn) bailout bill.
The average was at 10,572.69 as of 13:56 hours New York time (17:56 GMT), up 89.84 points. Earlier the average was up more than 300 points.
The House was expected to pass the bill, so its approval came as no surprise to the market.
Shares of Rohm and Haas reached $69.48, up 1.25%.
