(Newser) – A rally in bank stocks led US indexes broadly higher on Wall Street, breaking an eight-day losing streak for the Dow Jones industrial average, the AP reports. Investors were encouraged Tuesday by a survey that showed consumer confidence had climbed to the highest level in more than 16 years. Apple rose 2% and Goldman Sachs gained 1.7%, the biggest gains in the Dow. Darden Restaurants, which owns Olive Garden, gained 9% after reporting strong earnings and an acquisition. The Standard & Poor's 500 index climbed 17 points, or 0.7%, to 2,358. The Dow jumped 150 points, or 0.7%, to 20,701. The Nasdaq composite increased 34 points, or 0.6%, to 5,875. Three stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. (Read more Dow Jones stories.)
