Euro-area finance ministers will hold an emergency meeting in Brussels on Nov. 26 to discuss unlocking the next installment of aid to Greece. Their meeting this week failed to produce a decision as creditors led by Germany refused to bring fresh money or offer debt relief.

Iliad SA (ILD), the mobile operator that drove prices down in France with a 2-euros-a-month offering, climbed 4.1 percent to 133.65 euros, the highest since it sold shares to the public in 2004. Morgan Stanley upgraded the stock to overweight, a recommendation similar to buy, from equal weight.

The major U.S. stock indices ended the session back in positive territory, but this growth was speculative. For the week DOW index rose 3,73%, Nasdaq rose 4,58%, S & P500 gained 4.12%.
The reason for today's purchases, which are characterized by a decrease in the volume of trading, are some of the positive data from Europe and Asia.
Thus, in Europe today, was published the business climate index of Ifo, who in November was higher than forecast. In Asia, investors pleased that the data released yesterday (U.S. stock markets were closed yesterday), the index of business activity in the manufacturing sector of China from HSBC, which for the first time in the last 12 months rose above 50 points. A reading above this mark is a sign of growth of activity in the sector.
Support indices today also provided speculation on steps that can be taken on Greece international lenders to enable the country to cope with the current debt problems.
In general, the fundamental reasons for the significant growth is still there, and the next week if the situation does not change, the markets again with high probability may be under pressure.
Remember that U.S. stock markets are closed today at 18:00 GMT. You must also keep in mind that, as a rule, the volume of trading in the session after Thanksgiving is one of the lowest in the year.
All components of the index DOW, except shares Johnson & Johnson (JNJ, -0.04%), rose in price. Shares rose more than other Hewlett-Packard (HPQ, +4.19%), which today continues to be adjusted after a 12% drop after the publication of disappointing quarterly report.
All major sectors of the index S & P strengthened. Maximum growth demonstrates the technology sector (+1.6%). Less than all the added utilities sector (+0.3%)
At the close:
Dow 13,009.68 +172.79 +1.35%
