Wall Street rose on Wednesday on the back of gains in technology stocks, as investor sentiment was boosted by reports indicating an ease in trade tensions between the United States and China ahead of pivotal talks on Thursday.

Separately, the Financial Times said Beijing was offering to increase its annual purchases of U.S. agricultural products.

Shares in Microsoft Corp and Apple Inc rose about 1% and were among the biggest boosts to the S&P 500 . The technology sector rose 1.08%.

Chipmakers with a sizable exposure to China also gained, with the Philadelphia SE Semiconductor index up 1.45%.
