US markets ended higher on Friday despite having pared earlier gains following Donald Trump's inauguration speech. 

The new president struck a strongly nationalist and protectionist stance during his address, causing each of the main indexes to dip.

At close, the Dow Jones had gained 0.48% to 19,827.25, the S&P 500 was up 0.34% at 2,271.31, and the Nasdaq was 0.28% higher at 5,555.33.

Stocks have been in a holding pattern in recent weeks as early jubilation about Mr Trump's pro-growth agenda has given way to trepidation. 

Phil Orlando of Federated Investors told Reuters: "I think folks priced in the good stuff in that first month [after the election] and now they're worried about inflation and what's the Fed going to do, and a stronger dollar and trade wars and tariffs and the like."

For most of this week stocks have been in a holding pattern as investors shied away from making risky bets ahead of Mr Trump's inauguration.

US stocks closed lower on Thursday as investors avoided making risky bets ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration. 

The Dow Jones lost 0.37% to 19,732.40, the S&P 500 was down 0.36% at 2,263.69, and the Nasdaq was 0.28% lower at 5,540.08.

The dollar shed 0.3% against the euro to €0.93790.

Peter Tuz of Chase Investment Counsel told Reuters: "People are little bit jittery ahead of the inauguration and after the rally we've had. I'm not surprised the market is down."

On Thursday, spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters that Mr Trump would begin "enacting an agenda of real change" within the first few days of his presidency.

US stocks end Wednesday flat

US stocks ended flat on Wednesday, having been little moved by a speech from Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen that suggested the US would get a "nasty surprise" if it waits too long to raise interest rates again. 

The Dow Jones lost 22.12 points, falling to 19,804.65, the S&P 500 gained 3.99 points, rising to 2,271.88, and the Nasdaq 16.93 rose 16.93 points to 5,555.65.

Analysts say stocks have been in a holding pattern in recent weeks, as investors await the inauguration of Donald Trump as president.

This brought to an end a two-month rally that was spurred by Mr Trump's surprise victory in November. 

Katie Nixon of Northern Trust Wealth Management said: "It's natural after such a remarkable run post-election to have a bit of a flat, quiet period as investors wait for some more tangibles. 

"We know directionally where Donald Trump wants to go, and with a Republican Congress he's got a higher probability of success than otherwise, but we don't have the details."

Along with a reported rise in CPI inflation, the US also recorded faster industrial growth in December at 0.8% - up from 0.7% in November.

Wall Street markets closed lower on Tuesday as banks and financial stocks weighed on the major indexes.

The Dow Jones shed 0.3% to 19,826.77, the S&P 500 closed 0.3% lower at 2,267.89, and the Nasdaq lost 0.63% to 5,538.73.

Biotech and pharma stocks slipped after Donald Trump said in an interview that he would target companies over drug pricing and that he was ready to unveil a plan to replace Obamacare.

Bank stocks - which have rallied since Mr Trump's surprise victory in November - also slipped back, with the S&P 500 financial index down 2.3%.

Rick Meckler, president of Liberty View Capital Management, told Reuters:   "You're getting some giveback to the areas that have really done well with the Trump election. Some of that is a feeling he's starting to take on a lot of targets."
