The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) traded in the green for the first time this week on Friday, rising 0.23% to close at 7,309.2 points. That leaves it 0.28% lower than it was this time last week.

Leading the index higher today was the S&P/ASX 200 Real Estate Index (ASX: XRE), which jumped 1.1%.

Also in the green were the S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) – having lifted 0.6% and 0.5% respectively.
