The Dow ends this volatile week slightly positive, the NASDAQ ends the week flat, and the S&P 500 was negative on the week down -0.40%.

The major US indexes were a mixed bag this week, all close to flat, while commodities continue their record setting pace, and the US dollar falls to new lows.



The S&P 500 sectors were split on the week with Materials, Energy, Industrials, Utilities and Tech bringing in positive gains.

Commodities continue their record setting pace with oil close to $111 per barrel and gold hitting a high of $1,009 per ounce on the safe-haven play against the tumultuous markets. Grains plunged on Friday, including wheat, corn and soybeans on fears that a U.S. recession will curtail demand.



Note: Gold and Oil reflect the closing price of the pit session.

The Dollar continues to hit lows against major currencies, with record lows against the euro and 12-year lows against the yen. Today one euro cost as much as $1.5687, and the dollar/yen fell below 99 yen per dollar. Over the last twelve months, the US dollar has fallen against every major Asian currency except for the Pakistani rupee.
