New York – Wall Street ended higher on Thursday, benefiting from a rebound in oil prices and Apple, against a background of optimism about the impending resolution of the Sino-US trade war.

After a shy rebound on Wednesday, oil prices continued to rise on Thursday, gradually recovering from a real disaster that saw New York-listed crude oil prices fall for twelve consecutive sessions, a record.
The main beneficiaries on Thursday from this recovery, the values of this sector in the S & P 500 sub-index took 1.48%, the second largest sectoral increase in the broad index of the day.
First place (+ 2.46%) returned to the technology stock sub-index, driven by Apple's strong growth, which took 2.47%.
The apple brand, one of the biggest members of the coast, rebounded after slumping almost 20% since early October, weakening mainly by disappointing forecasts for the end of the year.
Apple has been one of the reasons for the decline in the index in recent days because the decline has caused the fall of the technology sector and the rest of the market, technology is the biggest sector on Wall Street.
