Investors were relieved to see that China had stabilized its currency, easing some of the pressure in its trade war with the US. The S&P 500 rose 37 points, or 1.3%, to 2,881. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 311 points, or 1.2%, to 26,029. The Nasdaq climbed 107 points, or 1.4%, to 7,833. (Read more stock market stories.)
