NEW YORK (AP) — Hopes that a deal could be reached between Greece and its creditors pushed stocks higher on Wednesday.

The U.S. market opened higher, following strong gains for European stocks, after Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras wrote a letter to the nation's creditors and appeared to make concessions.
