The Dow jumped 700 points from the opening bell, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite traded in positive territory.

On Wednesday, the US Senate and the White House reached a deal on a massive $2 trillion relief bill to combat the economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

“At last we have a deal,” said Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell following the agreement of the coronavirus stimulus deal. “In effect, this is a war-time level of investment into our nation.”

Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer added: “This is not a moment of celebration but one of necessity.”
