NASDAQ Composite (.IXIC) Nvidia sinks Nasdaq
The S&P 500 and Dow Industrials rose on Friday after President Donald Trump said the United States may not have to impose further tariffs on Chinese goods, but falling shares of Nvidia Corp dragged down the Nasdaq.
All three indexes had been lower in early trade as an underwhelming outlook from Nvidia weighed on the tech sector.

For the week, however, all three indexes posted losses. The S&P 500 fell 1.61 percent, the Dow lost 2.22 percent, and the Nasdaq shed 2.15 percent.
