This week was marked by the Fed's highlights from the previous FOMC meeting, as well as the Biden administration's decision to provide more military support to Ukraine worth nearly $800 million.

The Dow Jones plunged 0.86% or 292 points at the closing bell, while the Nasdaq 100 tumbled 1.95% or 263 points and the S&P 500 fell 1.29%. The euro once again neared parity against the greenback by dropping 0.47% at 3:59 pm ET to sell for 1.00405.
