Stock market closed higher hanging in hope for additional fiscal stimulus

The major Indices rose in today’s trading session finishing the week higher, marking their best weekly movement since two months ago. As investors cling on hope that an agreement will flourish for additional fiscal stimulus which is still being discussed at the house of congress.
