US stocks overturned early losses to trade higher on Wednesday as some buyers returned to a market still shaking from a record fall for the Dow Jones Industrial Average earlier this week.
Gains in industrial and consumer discretionary stocks led advances on the S&P and the Dow.
Boeing rose 2.7 percent, providing the biggest boost to the Dow, while Amazon's 1 percent rise helped lift the S&P 500.
At 10:53 am ET (1553 GMT), the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 249.57 points, or 1 percent, at 25,162.34. The S&P 500 rose.
