(Newser) – Stocks closed higher on Wall Street, giving the market its first four-day winning streak since September, the AP reports. Technology companies and banks posted big gains Wednesday.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 91 points, or 0.4%, to 23,879. The Nasdaq rose 60 points, or 0.9%, to 6,957. (Read more stock market stories.)
