Dow soars 372 points on shutdown deal and oil

New York (CNN Business)Wall Street on Tuesday cheered a reversal of two trends that had been weighing on investors: US politics and oil. Congressional negotiators said late Monday they reached an agreement in principle to avert a partial government shutdown at the end of this week. The deal will not be final until Congress passes it and President Donald Trump signs it — leaving a lot of room for a new development to scuttle the agreement. But Wall Street was optimistic that American lawmakers would avoid another crisis.
