Saturday, 23 June 2018 03:23 WIB | DOW JONES S & P 500 SahamAS

The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Friday closed higher, ending an eight-session slide that drove the broader market to weekly loss, amid rising global trade tensions.

The S&P 500 index gained 0.2% at 2,754, supported by a rally in crude-oil futures, which enjoyed a pop after the Organization of the...

Saturday, 23 June 2018 00:01 WIB | Indeks Stoxx Europe 600

Stocks across Europe closed higher Friday, aided by data showing business activity picked up in the eurozone after a slowdown. Also helping sentiment was a eurozone agreement on a debt-relief plan for Greece after the country's bailout ends, and the energy sector got a lift from a rally for oil prices. Greece's Athex Composite jumped on the debt-relief news, but couldn't hold its sizable gains and finished 0.2% lower. More broadly, the Stoxx Europe 600 Index was up 1.1% to end at 381.92, though it was still down 1.1% for the week. On Thursday, the Stoxx 600 fell 0.9% to mark its lowest...

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 125 points, or 0.5%, to 24,586. The blue-chip average is coming off an eight-day losing streak, its longest such stretch since March 2017. If the blue-chip average were to close lower on Friday, extending the...

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 150 points, or 0.6%, at 24,608, the S&P 500 index climbed 0.5% to 2,762. The Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 0.2% at 7,725.
