Stocks marched higher on Wall Street for the third straight day, erasing most of the plunge they took at the start of the week on worries about the worsening trade fight between China and the U.S.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 214 points, or 0.8%, to 25,862. The Nasdaq gained 75 points, or 1%, to 7,898.
