Initially, it appeared that traders were on track to extend yesterday’s bearishness that served to pare the historically high gains notched earlier in the week. But the mostly negative tone of the midday hours was not severe enough to prevent weekly gains by the large-cap composites and, as the closing bell approached, sentiment improved.
