"The markets are breathing a collective sigh of relief that the tensions in the Middle East didn't escalate," said Adam Sarhan of 50 Park Investments.

The broad-based S&P 500 gained 0.9 percent to 5,010.60, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index jumped 1.1 percent to 15,451.31.

All 11 sectors of the S&P 500 finished in positive territory.

This week's earnings calendar includes results from tech titans such as Amazon and Microsoft, as well as from industrial companies including Chevron and General Motors.
