Market Extra: Here’s how the stock market’s performance stacks up over the week, month and quarter

With the U.S. stock market closed on Good Friday, Thursday’s closing bell not only marks the end to the latest week of trading on Wall Street, but the close of March and the first quarter of 2018.

Weekly performance:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +1.07% gained 2.4% this week.

The S&P 500 SPX, +1.38% is up 2% this week.
