Investors kept the stock market's upward momentum going Monday, sending shares sharply higher after retail sales rebounded more than expected in October and the dollar extended its slide. Major stock indexes rose more than 1 percent to new 13-month highs, including the Dow Jones industrial average, which jumped 136 points. The Standard & Poor's 500 index closed above the 1,100 mark for the first time in more than a year.

The Dow rose 136.49, or 1.3 percent, to 10,406.96.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 15.82, or 1.5 percent, to 1,109.30.

The Nasdaq composite index rose 29.97, or 1.4 percent, to 2,197.85.
