  • S&P falls 1.4 percent in safety flight on North Korea tensions

Seven of the 11 major S&P 500 sectors were higher, with the technology's 0.36 percent rise leading the advancers.

The local index is still up 13.2 per cent for the year. Macy's sank 10.3 percent and Kohl's lost 5.8 percent.

"Since these are the stocks that have been in the spotlight the most, they tend to have the most volatility upwards and downwards", said Chris Bertelsen, chief investment officer of Aviance Capital Management in Sarasota, Florida. The index posted its third-worst weekly performance of the year.

Investor sentiment turned negative after North Korea said it was completing plans to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near the US Pacific territory of Guam in an unusually detailed threat.

In his latest warning to North Korea, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday military solutions were "fully in place" and referred to American weapons as being "locked and loaded" should the nuclear-armed nation act "unwisely".

"This is a very fluid environment".

"I'll tell you why, and they should be very nervous".

"We could see some zigging and zagging going into the weekend", Krosby said. Meanwhile, after jumping USD10.80 to USD1,290.10 an ounce in the previous session, gold futures are climbing USD6.50 to USD1,296.60 an ounce.

Excluding food and energy prices, core consumer prices still crept up by 0.1% in July, matching the increases seen in the three previous months.

"The market is trying to interpret the CPI data as somewhat positive because it is anticipating that the Fed will be on hold not only in September but also possibly in December", said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Boston Private Wealth.

USA government bonds strengthened Friday as soft inflation data led investors to further scale back expectations for interest-rate increases from the Federal Reserve.

Economic data showed U.S. producer prices unexpectedly fell in July, recording their biggest drop in almost a year, while separate figures showed the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week.

"With weak inflation, if not turning down, it will make it even more hard for the Fed to do anything, between today's CPI and yesterday's PPI", said Baird Chief Investment Strategist Bruce Bittles.

The smaller than expected increase in consumer prices has led to optimism that the Federal Reserve will not be in a hurry to raise interest rates.

"This will be the first back-to-back double digits earnings growth since late '11, but just as impressive has been this is a global recovery in earnings".

The CBOE Volatility Index .VIX , a barometer of expected near-term stock market volatility, closed at its highest since the US presidential election on Thursday, but was down 1.22 points at 14.82 points on Friday.
