Stocks moved higher Tuesday on a report that European leaders are considering a second bailout fund to supplement the one they have already agreed to in the hopes of stabilizing markets in the Eurozone and bringing some sense of calm to international markets.

For the day, the Dow Jones industrial average finished up 52.30 points at 12,150.13 while the Nasdaq trimmed 6.20 points to close at 2,649.56. The S&P 500 inched up 1.39 points to 1,258.47.
