Dow and S&P 500 had waded into the red earlier in the day, but the two stock market indices roared back to life heading into the afternoon, breaking away from their recent bearish trends. As of the time of writing, the Dow had rallied by 1,086 points for the day — its largest single-day gain ever — while the S&P 500 gained 4.95 percent after Mastercard SpendingPulse released data showing that retailers had experienced their best holiday spending season in six years.
On the crypto front, however, investors were much less enthusiastic.

Outside of the large-cap index, however, ethereum classic — ranked 17th by market cap — headlined with a 10.31 percent rally to $5.15.
