US stocks Tuesday jumped amid hopes the partial government shutdown will not seriously harm the economy.
At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 61.33 points (0.41 percent) to 15,191.00.
The broad-based S&P 500 tacked on 13.46 (0.80 percent) at 1,695.01, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index added 46.50 (1.23 percent) at 3,817.98.
Analysts said many investors had already priced in a government shutdown, limiting the hit when one actually occurred at midnight Monday.
Also, many predict a speedy resolution.
