U.S. stocks gained on Tuesday, as investors bought shares beaten down in recent weeks and bet European leaders would take action soon to ease the Greek debt crisis.

All three indexes were up. The Dow rose just under half a percent, the S & P 500 was up almost 1 percent percent and the Nasdaq gained one-and-a-half percent. Buyers pushed large-cap tech shares higher. They're viewed by some as less risky stock bets, and an area likely to benefit in an improving economic climate.

Around Europe, and Germany's DAX index gained almost 2 percent, France's CAC 40 rose around one-and-a-half percent and the FTSE 100 was up close to 1 percent. Banking stocks bounced back in what was mostly seen as a technical rally, with Societe Generale rising 15 percent and Deutsche Bank gaining over 8 percent.
