The S&P 500 added 1.3% to 1,254 while the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 104.83 points, or 0.9%, to 11,913.
A weekend summit of eurozone leaders led to the outlining of a deal to ease the region's debt crisis, with final details to be agreed at another meeting tomorrow.

The progress boosted European markets on Monday, with London's FTSE, France's Cac 40 and the German Dax all up more than 1%.

The MSCI Asia Pacific index decreased 0.2% in Tokyo, while Japan's Nikkei 225 Stock Average lost 0.4% and Australia's S&P/ASX 200 index declined 0.8% percent. Elsewhere, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index climbed 0.5%.
