The worst week for global equities in almost two months finished on a positive note as optimism in the economy’s strength helped counter a procession of concerns from geopolitics to valuations and interest rates. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (SPX) lost 1.4 percent for the week, paring declines on the final day with a 0.9 percent rally, Bloomberg reported.
