Wall Street stocks posted solid gains Tuesday, extending a rally fueled by market expectation Democrat Hillary Clinton will win a tightly-contested US presidential race.
While votes have yet to be counted, analysts said investors believe election polls that show Clinton with a modest, but clear, edge over Republican candidate Donald Trump. At the closing bell, the S&P 500 was at 2,139.24, up 0.4 percent.
