26.08.2015 16:24 Wall Street. Major U.S. stock-indexes rose

Major U.S. stock-indexes rose on Wednesday, helped by stronger-than-expected durable goods data, raising hopes that Wall Street will snap its six-day losing streak. Durable goods orders rose 2% in July, compared with analysts' average forecast of a 4% fall. Orders for core capital goods, a proxy for business investment, rose 2.2% - their biggest gain in 13 months. The data suggested U.S. economy was in good shape. Wednesday's gains followed a dramatic day of trading on Tuesday, when the three main indexes reversed course suddenly to close sharply lower amid lingering worries about slowing growth in China.

Almost all of Dow stocks in positive area (29 of 30). Top looser - The Boeing Company (BA, -0.06%). Top gainer - Merck & Co. Inc. (MRK, 3.22).

Almost all S&P index sectors in positive area. Top looser - Conglomerates (-0.3%). Top gainer - Technology ( 1,1%).
