How major US stock indexes fared Friday 6/24/2022

Wall Street rallied on Friday, lifting the S&P 500 3.1% for its best gain in two years. The benchmark index also ended the week 6.4% higher, erasing the brutal loss it took a week earlier.

It was just the second winning week for the S&P 500 in the last 12.

Stocks climbed this week as pressure from rising Treasury yields let up somewhat and investors speculated the Federal Reserve may not have to be as aggressive about raising interest rates as earlier thought to control inflation.

It’s been a reprieve from Wall Street’s tumble through most of the year.

The S&P 500 rose 116.01 points, or 3.1%, to 3,911.74.
