  • All 11 major sectors of the S&P 500 are in the positive territory in the early trade.

Wall Street’s main indexes started the day in the positive territory on Thursday as investors cheered the upbeat third-quarter earnings figures and the announcement of a Brexit deal, subject to the UK parliament’s approval on Saturday.

As of writing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.35% on the day while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite were adding 0.5%, and 0.78%, respectively.

Among the 11 major S&P 500 sectors, which are all in the positive territory following the opening bell,  the Communication Services is up around 0.8% to lead the rally boosted by a more-than-8% upsurge witnessed in Netflix shares. The video streaming service provider announced that it added more subscribers than forecasted by analysts.
