Stocks on Track to Snap Weekly Winning Streak

Stocks were poised to snap a five-week winning streak, knocked by concerns about high levels of inflation.

Futures for the S&P 500 edged up 0.2% Friday, pointing to a small opening advance for the benchmark index. The S&P 500 has fallen 1% so far this week, interrupting a streak of gains that kicked off when U.S. companies began to report strong earnings in mid-October.
