Today in the market, Friday, March 13, 2009 : A sharp rebound in bank shares and easing worries about the economy pushed stocks to their best week since late November. The market shot up in one week as it might in some years, with major indicators chalking up gains of around 10 percent. Friday's gains were modest compared with the rallies on Tuesday and Thursday, but investors welcomed the market's ability to hold its ground. Several recent rallies have ended with disappointing selloffs. Fears eased during the week that the nation's major financial institutions would collapse or at least require additional government lifelines to stay alive. Market veterans were quick to rein in hopes that stocks would chart an easy recovery but many still saw the four straight days of gains a good sign.
