Markets Mixed Friday; Energy Stocks Lead 52-Week Highs Once Again

During trading Friday, 14 stocks traded to a 52-week high, while 372 stocks bottomed out at new 52-week lows. The S&P 500 is up 0.01% so far today while the Dow is up 0.03%, the Nasdaq is down 0.3%, and the Russell 2000 is down 0.17%.

Markets were mixed Friday after opening higher following the news that China was lowering its interest rates by 15 basis points in an attempt to boost loans and mortgages as the housing market suffers amid its extensive quarantine policies put in place as a result of the country's zero-Covid tolerance policy.
