How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday

May 21, 2019 GMT

Stocks closed broadly higher on Wall Street Tuesday after the U.S. government temporarily postponed proposed restrictions on technology sales to Chinese companies.

The news boosted chipmakers and other technology sector stocks, which took steep losses a day earlier when the Trump administration announced the restrictions. Health care, financial and industrial stocks helped power the rally, which snapped the market’s two-day losing streak.
