It was the Dow’s best daily gain since a 260 point rise on Sept. 11.

The stock price surge, which also included record highs for the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index, the Nasdaq composite and the small-company Russell 2000, was fueled by news that the Senate Budget Committee cleared the current version of the Republican-led tax bill in a 12-11 vote.

The tax plan is viewed by investors as the centerpiece of Trump’s economic stimulus initiatives, as lower taxes for businesses and individuals is seen as boosting the economy, corporate earnings and consumer spending.
