Stocks - Wall Street Holds Early Gains, Lifted by Oil Bounce, Senate Action

U.S. stock markets opened higher after two days of losses as a measure of confidence returned thanks to a rebound in crude oil prices and the Senate's passing of another economic support package, which tops up the existing program for small businesses by more than $400 billion while also channelling more money to hospitals.
By 10:10 AM ET (1410 GMT), the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 405 points, or 1.8%, at 23,424 points. The S&P 500 was up 1.7% and the Nasdaq Composite was up 2%.
U.S. crude futures bounced smartly after President Donald Trump tweeted threatening military action against Iran if it "harassed" U.S. shipping, and after Russia's oil minister Alexander Novak said he thought the collapse in global oil demand had run its course.
