How major US stock indexes fared Wednesday

Posted

Stocks rallied again on Wall Street Wednesday, and the S&P 500 climbed back to where it was just one week after it set its all-time high earlier this year.

The S&P 500 rose for a fourth straight day and climbed back within 8% of its record set in February as lockdowns loosen around the world and raise hopes for a coming economic recovery. Treasury yields also strengthened in a sign of improved confidence after several reports suggested that while the U.S. economy is still getting pummeled, it may not be as bad as economists had feared.

On Wednesday:

The S&P 500 gained 42.05 points, or 1.4% to 3,122.87.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 527.24 points, or 2%, to 26,269.89.

The Nasdaq composite added 74.54, or 0.8%, to 9.682.91.

The Russell 2000 index of small company stocks rose 33.88, or 2.4%, to 1,452.09.

For the week:

The S&P 500 is up 78.56 points, or 2.6%.

The Dow is up 886.78 points, or 3.5%.

The Nasdaq is up 193.04 points, or 2%

The Russell 2000 is up 58.05 points, or 4.2%.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is down 107.91 points, or 3.3%.

The Dow is down 2,268.55 points, or 7.9%.

The Nasdaq is up 710.31 points, or 7.9%
