U.S. stock indexes ended with gains Tuesday as investors awaited the outcome of midterm congressional elections and looked ahead to a consumer price index reading later this week. Equities shrugged off a mid-afternoon dip that came as crypto assets fell sharply in the wake of a planned Binance-FTX merger that investors feared could sow more chaos into the market for digital assets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +1.02% rose around 334 points, or 1%, to end near 33,161, according to preliminary figures, while the S&P 500 SPX, +0.56% advanced around 21 points, or 0.6%, to finish near 3,828. The Nasdaq Composite COMP, +0.49% finished near 10,616, up 52 points, or near 0.5%.
