Stock market news

“Stocks traded higher Friday as investors continued to mull chances of a virus-relief package amid mixed signals from officials as to what size of a proposal they might support.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq each posted their best weekly gain since July as of Friday’s close, rising about 3.7% and 4.6%, respectively. The Dow gained 3.3% on the week for its best gain since August.

Traders have closely monitored developments out of Washington to weigh whether a comprehensive or partial stimulus package might emerge before Election Day on Nov. 3, with additional relief measures viewed as a key tenet in encouraging the recovery in the virus-stricken economy. The Department of Labor’s weekly report on new jobless claims Thursday morning showed a worse than expected 840,000 individuals filed for first-time unemployment insurance benefits last week, though continuing claims dipped back below 11 million for the first time since late March.”
