1.� �Pro-growth tactics in China and a can-do tone in the eurozone helped outweigh more weak data and a stimulus snuff speech by Fed chief Ben Bernanke. Stocks responded with gusto, lifting the Nasdaq 4%, the S&P 500 3.7% and the Dow 3.6% � the best week for each since Dec. Oil crumpled 5% in a 6th straight weekly loss. Corn soared 9%. Gold shaved 2% to end just below its 50-day average. The 10-year Treasury yield hopped up 15 basis points to 1.64%.
