The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose three points to 1,617, setting another record. That's an increase of 0.2 percent.

The Nasdaq composite rose 14 points to 3,392, an increase of 0.4 percent.

Bank of America rose after announcing a settlement with a mortgage insurance company, MBIA, clearing up a dispute dating to the bursting of the housing bubble.
