By Anora MahmudovaMarketWatch Pulse

U.S. stocks advanced on Tuesday with the S&P 500 closing above 2,100, its highest level in four weeks. Investors shrugged off a weaker-than-expected manufacturing report, while analysts noted that a disappointing ISM is unlikely to dissuade the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates at its next meeting. The S&P 500 gained 22.22 points, or 1.1% to 2,102.63. The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 168.43 points, or 1%, to 17,888.35. The Nasdaq Composite ended the day up 47.64 points, or 0.9%, at 5,156.31.
