The S&P 500
gained 12.40 points or 0.3% to close at 4,378.38. It advanced for seven straight sessions, its longest win streak since Nov. 8, 2021.

What drove markets The extended bounce for equities comes after a three-month pullback that saw the S&P 500 and Nasdaq slip into a market correction — a decline of at least 10% from a recent high. But investor pessimism had been overdone, argued Solita Marcelli, chief investment officer for the Americas at UBS Global Wealth Management, in a note.
