(Close): US shares closed higher on Friday, carrying on a rally that started on Wednesday after the US Federal Reserve indicated it could be "patient" about raising interest rates.

The Dow Jones gained 26.65 points to close at 17,804.80, while the S&P 500 added 9.42 to finish at 2,070.65.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq rose 16.98 points to end at 4,765.38.

The biggest Dow faller was Nike, where shares were knocked back 2.31% on fears the stronger dollar would hurt orders.

Troubled smartphone maker Blackberry saw its shares plunge as much as 6% after it reported less-than-expected third quarter revenue, but they later recovered to close down just 1%.
