NEW YORK (AP) - Can the S&P 500 index post an eighth straight week of gains? And can the Dow Jones industrial average reverse course after suffering a second straight weekly loss.
On Friday, indexes ended the day more or less where they started as investors held back ahead of a meeting of global finance ministers and central bankers in Moscow.
The Dow edged up 8 points to 13,981, while the Standard & Poor's 500 edged down 1 ½ points to 1,519. The Nasdaq composite lost 6 1/2 points.
