U.S. stocks advanced, after Chinese equities rebounded the most since 2009 and the Greek government faced a deadline for an economic plan to secure a new bailout.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index climbed 0.2 percent to 2,051.27 at 4 p.m. in New York, after falling 1.7 percent to a four-month low yesterday.

The S&P 500 climbed as much as 1.4 percent today before giving up more than half its gains to trade near its average price during the past 200 days. Apple’s 1.9 percent slide weighed on the major indexes.
