U.S. stocks soared Thursday as the government came closer to approving a $2 trillion stimulus package to combat the coronavirus pandemic, capping a three-day rally that has pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average into a bull market.

The Dow industrials finished the day up 1351.62 points, or 6.4%, to close at 22,552.17. The jump ends an 11-trading day bear market for the index—the shortest in history for the Dow—which reached its bear-market low just three days ago.
