(Reuters) – U.S. stocks opened higher on Tuesday, lifted by technology shares, after Washington confirmed that trade talks will resume in two weeks, easing some uncertainty caused by the cancellation of a U.S. farm visit by Chinese delegates last week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI rose 84.08 points, or 0.31%, at the open to 27,034.07.

The S&P 500 .SPX opened higher by 10.65 points, or 0.36%, at 3,002.43. The Nasdaq Composite .IXIC gained 34.77 points, or 0.43%, to 8,147.24 at the opening bell.
