Market Snapshot: Dow snaps 8-session skid, but logs worst weekly fall since March as trade jitters persist

U.S. stock benchmarks ended mostly higher on Friday as an OPEC-inspired rally in energy shares helped the Dow industrials halt a lengthy slide, but equities rang up weekly losses in a period pockmarked by a series of trade-related spats.

What did the main benchmarks do?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.49% rose 119.19 points, or 0.5%, to 24,580.89, with the equity gauge ending an eight-day losing streak, that if extended to a ninth session would have represented the longest losing since 1978.

The S&P 500 SPX, +0.19% added 0.2%, or 5.12 points, to close at 2,754,88.
