The late-day U.S. surge also pulled up equity markets in Brazil and Mexico by double-digit percentage gains, and extended a plunge in benchmark U.S. government debt prices. The Dow industrials and the S&P 500 had their second-biggest point gains after the record rally two weeks ago.
A Japanese newspaper report saying the Bank of Japan is considering an interest rate cut sparked the dollar-denominated Nikkei 225 futures index NKc1 to jump 14 percent and hit an upward limit threshold, and helped ignite the U.S. rally.
