The S&P 500 and Nasdaq scored modest fourth-straight daily wins on Friday, while the Dow settled just above breakeven. All three major benchmarks saw a third consecutive week in the black, which hasn't happened for the Dow and S&P 500 since July, and for the Nasdaq since June. Softer-than-expected inflation data was a major driving force behind this week's rally, which brought forth the Cboe Volatility Index's (VIX) fourth-straight week in the red.
