All three major U.S. stock indexes rose to record highs on Friday despite a volatile week full of significant geopolitical concerns.

  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 48 points higher, or 0.2% to break above 29,000 for the first time ever.
  • The S&P 500 climbed 0.2% to touch 3,282.99 — an all-time record.
  • The Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.3% to 9,234.63 — an all-time record.

The stock run-up continues as President Trump and representatives from China are set to sign a "Phase One" trade deal at the White House on Wednesday.
