    U.S. stocks were able to finish higher on Wall Street today after reversing early losses after the Federal Reserve Chairwoman, Janet Yellen, came to the rescue.

    Yellen emphasized in speech at the Economic Club of New York today, Tuesday, that policy makers at the FOMC are taking a cautious approach to hiking interest rates.

    The S&P 500 was gained 17.99 points, or 0.9%, to 2,055.03. The Dow added 98.27 points, or 0.6%, to 17,633.66. The Nasdaq also showed gains of 79.84 points, or 1.7%, to 4,846.62. This has left the S&P and the Dow climbing to their highest close this year so far.
