(FOX NEWS) – U.S. equity markets surged Tuesday morning amid investor optimism that members of Congress will overcome their differences to reach a deal on a $1.6 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average surged 1,770 points, or 9.5 percent, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite gained 8.6 percent and 7.4 percent, respectively.
