The Hindu Business Line - - MARKET RADAR -

Wall Street’s main in­dices rose on Tues­day, led by tech­nol­ogy stocks, on the back of eas­ing trade ten­sions with Mex­ico and signs of more fis­cal stim­u­lus in China. All the ma­jor S&P sec­tors were trad­ing higher, with the de­fen­sive util­i­ties and real es­tate sec­tors post­ing the smallest gains. Mar­quee com­pa­nies — Face­book, Ap­ple, Ama­zon.com, Mi­crosoft Corp and Al­pha­bet — climbed be­tween 0.5 per cent and 2 per cent. At 9.56 am ET, the Dow Jones In­dus­trial Av­er­age was up 126.8 points, or 0.49 per cent, at 26,189.48. The S&P 500 was up 18.54 points, or 0.64 per cent, at 2,905.27 and the Nas­daq Com­pos­ite was up 66.37 points, or 0.85 per cent, at 7,889.54.
