Investing.com - The S&P 500 finished at an all-time high close, just missing its intraday all-time high, and other leading U.S. indices closed higher to finish the holiday-shortened trading week, as low trading volumes and optimism over the Omicron Covid-19 variant being less severe allowed the fabled "Santa rally" effect to set in a little early.

The S&P 500 ended the day fading from session highs, up .62% to 4725.74. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 197 points to 35951, up .55%, while the NASDAQ Composite again outshone its peers, finishing the day up .84% at 15653.
