The Dow Jones Industrial (Dow Jones 30 Industrial) closed 1.78 percent higher at 26,287.03 points, almost at its daily high. The leading index also ended above the 26,000 mark for the first time in almost two weeks. The broader S&P 500 rose 1.59 percent to 3179.72 points. The technology-heavy NASDAQ 100 rose 2.53 percent to 10 604.06 points. On Friday, the US stock exchanges were closed due to the Independence Day celebrations on Saturday./edh/fba
