The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 207.39 points, or 0.8%, to 25,539.57.

The Nasdaq composite rose 48.36 points, or 0.6%, to 7,575.48.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies slipped 1.77 points, or 0.1%, to 1,506.79.

For the week:

The S&P 500 is up 74.09 points, or 2.7%.

The Dow is up 724.53 points, or 2.9%.

The Nasdaq is up 122.33 points, or 1.6%.
