Wall Street Rises on Softer U.S. Stance on China Trade

(Reuters) – Wall Street’s major indexes rose on Monday as a softer stance by U.S. policymakers on China tariffs powered a rebound from last week’s sell-off, though stocks pared gains in the final minutes of the trading session.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 46.41 points, or 0.19 percent, to 23,979.17, the S&P 500 gained 8.69 points, or 0.33 percent, to 2,613.16, and the Nasdaq Composite added 35.23 points, or 0.51 percent, to 6,950.34.
