Wall Street closed higher Wednesday after the Federal Reserve released minutes from its May meeting.

The Dow added six points to end trading at 20,944 and the Nasdaq rose 13 points to 6,152.

The S&P increased two points to hit 2,401 -- a new record.

The Fed said a rate hike may come "soon", according to the minutes.
