Oil rose and the U.S. dollar index fell as the euro climbed higher after a better than expected German business sentiment survey raised hopes about the health of the European economy.
Treasuries fell as the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P rose on relief about Europe, but worries about what may transpire next week pared those moves by the close.
Among the big names making news in the market Friday were McDonald’s, GE, US Airways, Honeywell, Bank of America, and Riverbed Technology.
