The S&P 500 hit a record high on Tuesday as inflation data was seen keeping the Federal Reserve in an equities-friendly tone, while hopes rose for an easing of tensions in Ukraine. Mixed earnings have been pouring in since Monday's closing bell, allowing the positive bent to continue. US consumer prices rose in June as the cost of gasoline surged, but the overall trend pointed to a slow build-up of inflation pressures -allowing the Fed to continue to gradually take the foot off the stimulus pedal.

US stocks slipped on Monday as investors remained cautious about instability in Ukraine and Gaza, though the three major indexes ended well off their lows, a sign that some appetite for riskier assets remained. The S&P 500 fell as much as 0.6 percent, though it recovered most of those losses and closed right above its 14-day moving average, suggesting buyers were using weakness to come back into the market. Still, the day's losses were broad, and nine of the 10 primary S&P 500 sector indexes fell.
Japan's Nikkei share average rose on Tuesday as investors returned from a three-day weekend, with exporters pulling ahead as the strong yen trend paused even as geopolitical concerns lingered. The Nikkei gained 0.8 percent to 15,343.28. On Friday, the index fell 1.0 percent to its lowest closing level since July 11 as investors fled riskier assets on news that a Malaysian Airlines passenger jet was shot down near the Ukraine-Russia border.
Britain's top share index rallied on Tuesday, lifted by technology group ARM, which posted higher profits and beat analysts' expectations. Global equity markets were also boosted after pro-Russian rebels complied with calls from Western governments and handed over the black boxes of the Malaysia Airlines plane downed over eastern Ukraine last week. The bluechip FTSE 100 equity index closed up by 1 percent, or 66.90 points, at 6,795.34 points.
European shares bounced back on Tuesday on some strong earnings reports and after signs of cooperation between Russia and other nations in investigating the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. The handover of flight MH17's black boxes and reports by international investigators of improved access to its wreckage came as EU foreign ministers threatened Russia with harsher sanctions for its support of separatists in the area.
Indian shares rose more than 1 percent on Tuesday, approaching their record highs hit earlier this month after telecom stocks surged following Idea Cellular' better-than-expected earnings while stronger Asian shares also bolstered sentiment. Gains were also helped after energy conglomerate Reliance Industries rallied for a second day after its quarterly earnings out on Saturday beat estimates.
Taiwan stocks rose 0.39 percent in morning trade on Tuesday, in line with other regional bourses as investors shrugged off concerns about the ongoing crises in Ukraine and Gaza in light of above-average corporate results. As of 0234 GMT, the main TAIEX index was up 36.36 points at 9,477.33. The index ended up 0.43 percent in the previous session. Among the major subindexes, oil, gas and electric shares and electronic components were the major standouts, gaining 1 and 1.12 percent, respectively.
