Tuesday, June 25, 2013 4:37 PM
Stocks rebounded sharply on Tuesday, paring most of their losses from previous trading session, as concerns over liquidity crunch in China were overshadowed by some robust U.S. economic data. The Dow Jones ended the day 0.69% higher at 14,760.31, the S&P 500 ended the day 0.95% higher at 1,588.03, and the Nasdaq ended the day 0.82% higher at 3,347.89.

On the economic front, a report released by the Commerce Department showed that durable goods orders rose 3.6% in May, beating consensus forecast of an increase of 3%. Meanwhile, consumer confidence rose to the highest level in more than five years in June, according to the Conference Board. Home prices in 20 U.S. cities rose 1.7% in April, according to data from S&P/Case-Shiller. A separate report showed that new home sales rose 2.1% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 476,000 units in May.
