Friday Stock Market Roundup: Trade Fear, Tesla Troubles, 200% Gains for Oil Shipper
Major indexes are up this Friday, a performance representative of an excellent week for stocks. This week's run constitutes a show of resiliency in the face of trade fears, recovering much of the ground lost during June's trade-induced selloff. That said, the actual economic effects of a brewing trade war haven't even been felt yet: the action so far is simply investors trying to anticipate and price the pain. Whether markets can ultimately weather the storm or not, the coming months appear almost certain to continue exhibiting volatility from uncertainty in international commerce.
