U.S. stocks closed broadly higher on Thursday, led by gains in oil and gas companies as the price of crude turned higher. The gains came a day after the market had its worst drop since September. It was a reprieve for the energy sector, which has been battered in recent months as crude oil prices plunged.

On Thursday:

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 227.64 points, or 1.4 percent, to 16,379.05.

The S&P 500 index gained 31.56 points, or 1.7 percent, to 1,921.84.

The Nasdaq composite climbed 88.94 points, or 2 percent, to 4,615.
