MARKET UPDATE |DOW JONESS & P 500 Standard & Poor's 500Saham ASNasdaq
U.S. stocks ended higher Wednesday, shrugging off geopolitical jitters surrounding North Korea as energy shares rallied and President Donald Trump and lawmakers reached a deal to extend the deadline on the debt ceiling by three months.
The S&P 500 ended 0.3% higher near 2.465, according to preliminary figures, while the Dow industrials advanced around 54 points to end near 21,807. The Nasdaq Composite finished 0.3% higher near 6,393.
But gains on Wall Street were limited, as investors had lingering concerns over North Korea, a œpotentially catastrophic Hurricane Irma, doubts about President Donald Trump™s business-friendly agenda, news that a key Federal Reserve official is resigning, and persistent worries about elevated stock valuations.
