NEW YORK (Reuters) – The broad S&P 500 endured wild daily swings, but a year of drama left the index on Friday pretty much where it started. Not since 1970 has the index ended a year as close to unchanged as it did this year.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (.SPX) was down 5.49 points, or 0.43 percent, at 1,257.53. The Nasdaq Composite Index (.IXIC) was down 8.59 points, or 0.33 percent, at 2,605.15.
