U.S. stocks staged a broad rally Tuesday as the tone of the U.S.-China trade conflict changed, at least temporarily.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +1.44%  ended with a gain of 373 points (up 1.4%), trimming an earlier rise of as much as 520 points (2%). The S&P 500 SPX, +1.48%  fared even better, jumping 1.5%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +1.95%  was strongest of all, with a 2% increase.

The price action followed an announcement by the office of the U.S. Trade Representative that some tariffs the U.S. had planned to place on imports from China on Sept. 1 would be delayed until Dec. 15 and that some tariffs would be removed entirely. President Trump also talked about a “very good call with China.”

Apple AAPL, +4.23% led the Dow 30, with the shares rising 4.2%. The delay of tariffs for several categories of electronics removed “a major near-term dark cloud” for the company, ahead of the launch of three new iPhone models expected in September, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives wrote in a note to clients.
