Stocks ended Monday's session at new records amid an upbeat tone tied to a preliminary U.S.-China trade deal struck last week, even while questions remain over the details of the long-awaited "phase one" accord.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 100.51 points, or 0.4%, to 28,235.89. Despite the travails of Dow constituent Boeing on Monday, the blue-chip index set its first all-time closing high since Nov. 28.
The S&P 500 rose 22.65 points, or 0.7%, to 3,191.45. The Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 79.35 points, or 0.9%, to 8,814.23, also marking new record closes. All three main benchmarks set new intraday records on Monday.
