US leads equities higher on hopes of US-China trade deal

Updated : October 31, 2018 06:15 AM IST

Trump said during an interview with Fox News late on Monday that he thought there could be an agreement with China on trade. But he also said he had billions of dollars worth of new tariffs ready to be imposed if a deal was not possible.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 431.72 points, or 1.77 percent, to 24,874.64, the S&P 500 gained 41.38 points, or 1.57 percent, to 2,682.63 and the Nasdaq Composite added 111.36 points, or 1.58 percent, to 7,161.65.
The gains were broad, with all 11 sectors of the benchmark S&P index up for the day. The rally helped turn both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average once again positive for the year, though each is up less than 1 percent since the beginning of January. Both were up over 7 percent for the year at the start of October.
