Financial markets are closed today in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, after rallying Wednesday on better-than-expected consumer confidence numbers and a drop in oil prices in light trading.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 44.66, or 0.41 percent, to 10,916.09.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index added 4.38, or 0.35 percent, to 1,265.61, and the Nasdaq composite index gained 6.42, or 0.28 percent, to 2,259.98.
