Wall Street saw its strongest September since 1939 despite lingering concerns over US economic growth.
While September is historically one of the slowest months of the year, the Dow Jones closed 7.72% higher for the month.
The last time Wall Street saw a stronger September was at the start of World War II, when demand for US manufactured goods and war materials drove the bellwether index 13.5% higher.
Wall Street's rebound more than made up for the previous month, with US stocks suffering the worst August in nine years.
"September is usually one of the worst months of the year, but this is an unusual year with the fact that we keep going back and forth about which direction the economy is going," analyst Owen Fitzpatrick of Deutsche Bank told AFP.
Yesterday, the blue-chip Dow fell 0.44% to 10,788.05 despite an upward revision of US GDP growth for Q2.
