U.S. stocks rose on Monday amid rising concerns about North Korea’s nuclear ambitions
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose on Tuesday, the S&P 500 gained and U.K. shares fell.
The Dow Jones added 801 points to close at 26,902.
The S&P 500 added 602 points to finish at 25,984.
The Nasdaq Composite added 657 points to reach 7,942.
The index rose as more investors began to come to grips with North Korea after President Donald Trump signed a new sanctions bill on Thursday.
The U.N. Security Council passed the sanctions package after Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in New York last week.
The bill would require North Korea to halt its development of a nuclear weapon and would also impose sanctions on some of its key financial institutions.
The move was expected to spur global interest in North Korea, which has been mired in turmoil since a North Korean missile launch in February 2016.
The market has risen more than 500 points since Trump signed the sanctions bill into law on Thursday, the longest streak since August.
It also has surged more than 3,000 points since the start of the year.
The S&p 500 index has gained nearly 8,000 this year, while the Nasdaq has gained more than 6,000.
The CBOE Volatility index, a gauge of market volatility, rose to 5,865.
The index has risen 9,955 points since last Thursday.
