Wall Street closed slightly higher Wednesday with gains by big banks, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

The Dow added 37 points to end the day at 21,173 and the S&P rose three points to 2,433.

 

The Nasdaq increased 22 points to finish at 6,297.

 

JPMorgan Chase gained 1.1 percent, while Bank of America and Citigroup climbed 1.7 percent and 0.9 percent, respectively.
