The end of a volatile week

A volatile Friday to wrap up a volatile week on Wall Street. Stocks soared high early in the session, before ending the session with only modest gains. Good economic data helped. Personal income and personal spending both rose 0.3% in February. Despite all that cold and snowy weather at the start of the month. On Wall Street, the Dow was up as much as 150 points shortly after the open, but ended 58 points higher and higher for the week. The Nasdaq added four points, but ended its worst week in a year and a half after a sell-off in internet and biotech stocks. The S&P 500 added eight points today and was flat for the week.
