U.S.stock markets end trading week in green zone

Wall Street shares ended Friday’s trading session in the positive territory, recovering from recent losses due to a massive sell-off in the beginning of the week. The positive shares jump was possible due to Germany readiness to suspend its balanced budget and take on debt. Meanwhile, Treasury bond yields climbed from their historical lows.
