By Around the Web

(CNBC) The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell on Friday as market participants continued to worry about ongoing U.S.-China trade negotiations as well as slowing economic growth.

The 30-stock index fell 63.20 points to 25,106.33, notching its first three-day losing streak since December. The S&P 500 eked out a small gain, rising less than 0.1 percent to 2,707.88. The Nasdaq Composite ended the day up 0.1 percent at 7,298.20.

The major indexes were lifted well off their lows in the final minutes of trading. That surge helped the Dow and Nasdaq notch their seventh straight weekly gains. The S&P 500 also posted a small gain for the week.
