NEW YORK Women's Nike Air Max 95 Pure Platinum Grey UK , Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- U.S. stocks posted solid gains Thursday, as Wall Street assessed mixed economic data and positive earnings reports from big banks.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 217.00 points, or 1.28 percent, to 17,141.75. The S&P 500 jumped 29.62 points, or 1.49 percent, to 2,023.86. The Nasdaq Composite Index spiked 87.25 points Men's Nike Air Max 95 OG White Green UK , or 1.82 percent, to 4,870.10.

The index for all items less food and energy (core CPI) increased 0.2 percent in September after rising 0.1 percent in July and August. The core CPI has risen 1.9 percent over the past 12 months.
"While it may look like core inflation is moving towards that desired 2.0-percent mark with this report, the mix is not necessarily what the Fed expected," said Sophia Kearney-Lederman, an economic analyst at FTN Financial.
In a separate report Men's Nike Air Max 95 Stussy Triple White UK , the department announced that in the week ending Oct. 10, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial jobless claims decreased 7,000 from the previous week's revised level to 255,000, below market estimates.
Meanwhile, the October 2015 Empire State Manufacturing Survey indicates that business activity declined for a third consecutive month for New York manufacturers. The headline general business conditions index edged up 3 points, but remained negative at minus 11.4.

UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Three UN agencies warned that extreme hunger is pushing people to the brink of a catastrophe in parts of South Sudan, after a new report found that 3.9 million people nationwide face severe food insecurity Men's Nike Air Max 95 KPU Black Gold UK , a UN spokesman told reporters here Thursday.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP) are calling on the parties to the conflict to grant urgent and unrestricted access to Unity State, Farhan Haq, the deputy UN spokesman, said at a daily news briefing here.
A newly released Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis showed that at least 30,000 people are living in extreme conditions in Unity State and facing starvation and death, Haq said.
"The agencies say that unless unrestricted humanitarian access is urgently granted, food insecurity could deteriorate to famine in parts of Unity State Men's Nike Air Max 95 Black Red UK ," he said.
"They add that the dire economic situation in the country is contributing to record-high food prices and worsening levels of food insecurity," he said. "Even areas previously unaffected are now showing signs of severe deterioration."
"Since fighting broke out nearly two years ago, children have been plagued by conflict, disease, fear and hunger," said Jonathan Veitch, the UNICEF representative in South Sudan, in a press release.
"Their families have been extraordinary in trying to sustain them Men's Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard Flyknit Grey Black UK , but have now exhausted all coping mechanisms. Agencies can support, but only if we have unrestricted access. If we do not, many children may die," he added.
Since the civil war started in December 2013, it is the first time that an IPC analysis has found any parts of the population in phase five -- considered a "catastrophe" -- on the five-point IPC scale.
"This is the start of the harvest and we should be seeing a significant improvement in the food security situation across the country, but unfortunately this is not the case in places like southern Unity State, where people are on the edge of a catastrophe that can be prevented," said WFP Country Director Joyce Luma.
"The people of South Sudan need peace Men's Nike Air Max 95 Jacquard Red UK , nutritious food and other humanitarian assistance and livelihood support to survive and rebuild their lives," she added.
Unless unrestricted humanitarian access is urgently granted, the agencies said, food insecurity could deteriorate to famine in parts of Unity State, where humanitarian assistance has been hampered by the dreadful violence and lack of access in recent months. Some displaced families say they survive on just one meal a day consisting of only fish and water lilies.
Throughout the youngest country in the world, the IPC analysis indicates that 3.9 million people in South Sudan face severe hunger. Although the number of food insecure households has reportedly decreased, as expected, during the harvest season Men's Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Essential Khaki UK , it is almost 80 percent higher than in the same period last year, as even people living in states not directly affected by the conflict struggle with its long-term effects, erratic rainfall, depleted livelihood options, high food prices, fuel costs and inflation, in a generally degraded economic environment.
In addition, the IPC highlights that the overall nutrition situation remains critical Men's Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Essential Black Blue UK , with Global Acute Malnutrition among children under five above the emergency threshold in the conflict-affected
