Phew! It could’ve been real pain today for the bloodied bears, considering the very good (relatively) jobs number that came out tonight. But after some see-saw trading, that saw the Dow up 100 points at one point, it kind of turned into a snooze. “Mixed,” as they might say.
The Dow gained 12, while the NASDAQ and S&P 500 both slipped by a few points.
That being said, it was still an excellent week for the market overall. The S&P 500 was up over 2.5%, while the Dow was up 3%.
