U.S. equity indexes ended this week's session in green to extend a second straightly weekly rally, whereas better than expected earnings from Walt Disney Co and Abercrombie & Fitch Co managed to boost investors' confidence, despite that the University of Michigan confidence index failed to meet expectations.

Moreover, the U.S. trade deficit widened in September to add further pressures on the U.S. dollar, as the U.S. dollar dropped against major currencies, and accordingly commodities including gold and oil rose which boosted energy and mining shares.
