New York, July 11 (IANS) US stocks traded on an upbeat note on Tuesday as investors were digesting a slew of corporate earnings and economic data.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 153.26 points, or 0.62 per cent, to 24,929.85. The S&P 500 was up 9.34 points, or 0.34 per cent, to 2,793.51, Xinhua news agency reported.

Although concerns over trade tensions between the US and other major economies continued to weigh on the market, investors were likely to turn their attention to earnings reports as earnings season kicked off, experts said.
On the economic front, US small business optimism index fell 0.6 point from May to 107.2 in June, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) reported on Tuesday.
The reading was still high by historical standards, as business owners continued to create new jobs and increase compensation, according to NFIB. The index measures the opinion of small businesses on the economic conditions in the country.
