Week 36 in brief

North America

US stocks rose on Friday, with all major indices ending the week in gains, their first recorded weekly gains in four. Investors went on a buying spree in the week despite concerns about the economic outlook. These gains followed three weeks of losses that began in mid-August that had been triggered by concerns about the impact of tighter monetary policies and signs of an economic slowdown in Europe and China.

Analysts believe these gains were a result of the excessive selloff over the previous three weeks. Investors and analysts still remain uncertain about how the market will move going forward with inflation and the Federal Reserve’s aggressiveness in interest rate hikes still a big concern.
