U.S. stocks switched gears after last week's steep losses, moving higher on new polls showing a higher possibility that Britain would remain in the European Union.

So, I think, the market is kind of catching up to that reality." European stocks posted their biggest rallies since August on the renewed hopes that Britain would stay in the European Union.
