It was a week of ups and downs.

Starting Monday, the Dow fell a lot, then rose a little, then fell, then, well … let’s see where it’s at when the show starts.

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy went up, up and away, taking a Tesla with it. Then the boosters came back down.

And will the flags go up for a military parade in Washington, D.C.?

We salute the week’s top news in the Friday News Roundup.
