ISTANBUL (AA) – US stocks ended higher Thursday on positive economic figures, including jobless claims and PMI.

Meanwhile, durable goods orders declined 2.2% in February, worse than expectations.

The blue chip Dow Jones Industrial Average ended up 1.02%, or 349.44 points, at 34,707.

The S&P 500 rose 63.92 points, or 1.4%, to close at 4,520.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq climbed 269.23 points, or 1.9%, to 14,191.
