In a week marked by a Federal Reserve meeting and the subsequent speculation regarding when the central bank will finally raise interest rates (some think June, but there is still talk of a September “lift off”), U.S. stocks notched impressive gains.

Apple (NasdaqGS: AAPL) entered the Dow Jones Industrial Average mid-week and the blue chip index climbed nearly 2% on the week. The S&P 500 climbed more than 2% while the Nasdaq Composite added nearly 3% and is trading over the much ballyhooed 5,000 level.

Oil prices and the euro surged Friday, adding to the late-week risk-on rally. With that we head to some of the week’s biggest stories from the world of exchange traded funds.
