    Wall Street ends higher with help from tech, energy

    Wall Street indexes closed higher on Monday and the biggest drivers were technology and energy sectors as oil prices rose and investors waited for an expected U.S. Federal Reserve rate hike later in the week. Technology stocks were back in favor with the biggest boost from Apple Inc (AAPL.O) as investors eyed a continuation of strong fundamentals in the sector. Traders, waiting for the Fed's two-day rate setting meeting to begin on Tuesday, see an 85-percent probability for a 25 basis point hike to the Fed funds rate target and a 15-percent chance of a 50 basis point hike, which would be the third rate hike this year, according to CME Group's Fedwatch tool.
