Week 33 in Brief

How did the major indexes perform?

U.S. stocks closed lower Friday and booked weekly gains, but the trading outlook suggests it may be tough sledding ahead for investors hoping to find further gains, with the S&P 500 within a striking distance of its record close, and as stalled stimulus talks and data point to a slow and fitful economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

European markets closed lower on Friday as investors monitored concerns over the second wave of coronavirus cases, which caused the U.K. to implement new quarantine measures. Shares in France led the region.

Asian markets finished mixed as of the most recent closing prices.
