    U.S. stocks retrenched after an early surge but still looked poised for a second straight weekly gain amid continued calm on the tariff front -- although quarterly rebalancing brings the potential for volatile trading.

    World stocks hit new highs as trade worries ease, dollar slips

    World stock markets rallied on Thursday, with the Dow and S&P 500 setting new highs, while the U.S. dollar slipped as investors viewed this week's fresh U.S. and Chinese tariffs on imports as less harsh than initially feared.

The Dow industrials became the last key U.S. stock index to regain record territory, while the benchmark S&P 500 set a fresh record high.
