The Dow Jones Industrial Average index spiked 1.62% at the open, adding over 400 points. Visa led the gains increasing 3.98%. The S&P 500 climbed 1.64%. The Nasdaq 100 surged 2.62%. Video game company Activision Blizzard led the gains on the tech index, while the giants traded in the green.

The euro fell 0.30% against the dollar, selling for $1.15590 at 3:32 pm CET.
