Despite a spike in volatility, markets were still able to eke out gains last week. Friday also marked the end of the month and the end of the second quarter; though June ended in the red, equities closed out the second quarter in the black. This marks the third positive quarter in the last four. So far this year, the Dow has surged more than 13%, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq have increased nearly 13% each. For the quarter, the Dow gained 2.27%, the S&P 500 climbed 2.35%, and the Nasdaq rose 4.15%.[i]
