The S&P 500 Index rose 2.7% at the close of trading in New York Monday

Chipmakers and Banks led gains as the S&P 500 Index posted its biggest 1-day gainer since August 2015, 20 stocks climbed for each 1 that fell.

The bounce erased Friday’s fall, though there is a ways to go to make up all of last week’s losses.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that he is “cautiously hopeful” that China will reach a deal to avoid tariffs on $50-B of US exports, the European leaders asked for a permanent exclusion, and a deal was struck with SKorea.
