US

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose on Friday, marking a four-week winning streak. The Dow gained 117.12 points, or 0.33%, closing at 35,390.15. The S&P 500 inched higher by 0.06%, ending at 4,559.34, while the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.11%, closing at 14,250.85. Major retail shares saw slight increases as Black Friday kicked off the holiday shopping season, with Walmart and Target rising 0.9% and 0.74%, respectively, and Amazon ticking higher by 0.02%.

Commodity

Oil prices fell slightly as traders speculated on whether OPEC+ would come to an agreement on further production cuts. Brent crude futures dropped 36 cents, or 0.44%, to $81.06 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude slid $1.09, or 1.41%, to $76.01 a barrel. The delay in the OPEC+ meeting, originally scheduled for Nov. 26, added uncertainty to the market as producers struggled to reach a consensus on production levels.

Meanwhile, gold prices rose, on track for their second consecutive weekly gain, boosted by a drop in the U.S. dollar and expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve might soon end its interest rate-hiking cycle. Spot gold was up 0.4% at $1,999.88 per ounce, with a weekly gain of about 1%. U.S. gold futures gained 0.4% to $2,001.20.
