NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The Dow's winning streak ended at eight Friday. Quadruple witching brought some volume back to the market, but volatility was absent as a stronger dollar crushed commodity prices and related equities. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 37 points, or 0.4%, to 10,742 but finished the week ahead, by 1.1%. The S&P 500 shed 6 points, or 0.5%, to 1160 and gained 0.9% on the week while the Nasdaq fell by 17 points, or 0.7%, to 2374 but added 0.3% on the week. Volume firmed up after a week of sluggish trading, as four different futures and options contracts expire in an occurrence known as "quadruple witching." The Dow had volume of 434.1 million, compared with an average of 200.4 million. Stephen Wood, chief market strategist for Russell Investments, believes investors are going to have to adjust to a lower-return environment. "Markets probably recovered higher and quicker than anyone would have thought, but the environment of this recovery will be far slower than recoveries of the past. I always tell my clients: Markets are very efficient, but they aren't always accurate. A lot of this year-round rally has been a correction from the false perception of the 'it's the end of the world' environment. "Volatility may be absent in the market because the panic is starting to come off," Wood said. "There's stability there. In a low interest-rate, low-return environment, investors will have to look at what asset class mix they'll need in a slow-growth environment," he said. Wood expects investors to start favoring companies with strong balance sheets that have the ability to take market share. "2009 was clearly an earnings game, and 2010 is going to be all about revenues -- identifying which companies can now execute and grow after cutting costs," he said. Overseas, Hong Kong's Hang Seng gained 0.2% and Japan's Nikkei rose 0.8%. The FTSE in London added 0.1% and the DAX in Frankfurt lost 0.5%.
