The markets maintained an upbeat tone this week, as the S&P 500 notched its fourth consecutive weekly gain, adding 3.26% for the week. The Dow Industrials also had a positive week, closing 2.92% higher, while the Nasdaq Composite advanced by 3.08%.

The momentum came as the Labor Department reported the consumer price index gained 8.5% in July, below economist estimates of 8.7%. The week was capped off by the House approving the Inflation Reduction Act, a $480-billion legislative package that includes funding for climate change initiatives.
