U.S. stocks opened higher after a Chinese government official said Beijing would not immediately respond to President Donald Trump's latest round of tariff hikes last week.

The S&P 500 was up 0.8% to around 2,910. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 244 points, or 0.9%, to 26,280. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.2% to 7,951.

Equities jumped at the sign that Beijing may be moving to ease trade tensions instead of escalating the U.S.-China trade war.

A spokesperson for China's commerce ministry said "the question that should be discussed now is about removing the new tariffs to prevent escalation."

He also said both sides were discussing a planned meeting next month. A revision of second-quarter GDP growth showed the U.S. economy was still expanding at a steady clip of 2%, driven by strong consumer spending. In company news, shares of Best Buy Co. Inc fell 5.5% after the its second-quarter revenue fell short of analyst expectations.
