How major US stock indexes fared Friday

By The Associated Press

Stocks capped a turbulent week with another decline Friday as investors worry that a resolution in the U.S.-China trade dispute is a long way off.

Escalating tension over trade between the world's two biggest economies was the catalyst for big swings in the market this week. President Donald Trump indicated Friday he's in no rush to resume negotiations.

On Friday:

The S&P 500 index fell 19.44 points, or 0.7%, to 2,918.65.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 90.75 points, or 0.3%, to 26,287.44.

The Nasdaq fell 80.02 points, or 1%, to 7,959.14.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies slid 19.09 points, or 1.2%, to 1,513.04.

For the week:

The S&P 500 fell 13.40 points, or 0.5%.

The Dow dropped 197.57 points, or 0.8%.

The Nasdaq lost 44.93 points, or 0.6%.

The Russell 2000 slid 20.62 points, or 1.3%.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is up 411.80 points, or 16.4%.

The Dow is up 2,959.98 points, or 12.7%.

The Nasdaq is up 1,323.86 points, or 20%.

The Russell 2000 is up 164.48 points, or 12.2%.
