Shares on Wall Street ends higher in rebound



Shares on Wall Street have closed higher, rebounding after a bruising trading session on Wednesday.

 
Strong corporate results, including from tech firms Microsoft and Twitter, helped bolster the US exchanges.


The Dow Jones ended up 1.6%, the S&P 500 added almost 1.9% and the Nasdaq climbed almost 3%.


The gains followed steadier trading earlier on European markets, which calmed investors after declines in Asia.


London's benchmark FTSE 100 closed 0.6% higher, while the broader FTSE 250 added 0.7%.
Frankfurt's Dax and the Paris Cac both fared even better, adding 1% and 1.6% respectively.
Earlier, Tokyo stocks had slumped more than 3%.
