Wall Street

Stocks scrambled higher Tuesday and clawed back much of their losses from Monday's rout, the latest whipsaw move as investors weigh just how badly the escalating U.S.-China trade war will hurt the economy. The S&P 500 and other indexes rose as soon as markets opened, and the gains accelerated as the day progressed. Tuesday's market movements were a nearly mirror image of Monday's plunge, just not as severe: Technology companies led the way higher after bearing the brunt of the selling on Monday, Treasury yields rose modestly and gold gave back a bit of its gains. Caterpillar, JPMorgan Chase and other stocks recovered about half of their losses from the day before. Of course, stocks are still lower than they were last week, after the S&P 500 had its worst day in four months on Monday following China's pledge to raise tariffs on U.S. goods. Stocks also remain lower than they were on May 5, when President Donald Trump ignited this latest round of fear for markets by announcing on Twitter that the U.S. would raise tariffs on Chinese goods.

The S&P 500 was up 1.4%, as of 2 p.m. Eastern time. Its gain of 39 points erased more than half of its loss of 69.54 points on Monday and brought it to within 3.2% of its record set a couple weeks ago.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 350 points, or 1.4%, to 25,675, and the Nasdaq composite index jumped 1.7%.
