Blue-chip stocks in the U.K. dropped Friday, wrapping up the week with a fall in travel-related stocks after terrorists launched attacks in Spain.
NEW YORK (AP) — Gains for technology companies, banks and energy companies are helping U.S. stocks erase an early loss and move higher Friday. Stocks are coming off their biggest loss in three months. Sporting goods makers and retailers continue to take sharp losses after investors did not like what they heard from Foot Locker and Hibbett Sports. European markets continue to decline after terrorist attacks in Spain.
Europe finished Friday's session on a negative note, as the worst terror attack seen in Spain for more than 13 years added jitters to market sentiment.
