US stocks close near the highs

SPX daily
  • S&P 500 up 15 points to 4384 (+0.3%)
  • Nasdaq +0.1%
  • DJIA +0.4%
  • TSX -0.1%

It wasn't the most-thrilling day or most-volatile day but a steady bid emerged for US stocks after a soft open. The dip buyers don't need much prompting after passing last week's test.
