It was a banner week for U.S. stocks as the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite raced to record highs. With its 2.7% gain for the week, the Nasdaq Composite returned to levels not seen since the height of the dot-com bubble.
Adding to the risk-on feeling permeating markets, West Texas Intermediate futures, the benchmark U.S. crude oil contract, climbed 2.5% for the week, good for the sixth consecutive weekly gain. With that good cheer heading into the weekend, let’s get into some of this week’s most important ETF stories.
