U.S. benchmarks set new intraday highs shortly after the opening bell and showed so no signs of slowing down through Friday's trading session.
The S&P 500 was on track to finish the week with nearly a 3% gain--the index was trading in the green with healthcare stocks leading the way. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has also been making significant advances this week as it nears the 20,000 level. Furthermore, the Nasdaq saw a jump on Friday thanks to increases in biotechnology stocks.
