Wall Street jumped back on Friday to close at its highest in two weeks after a strong jobs report and assurance that the Central bank would be flexible in steering the course of interest rates. In what was called ‘deep volatility of the market’ that had gripped the economy for weeks, the US indices have now advanced by 3%.
It seems as though the gains wiped out the previous session’s losses and the technology sector seemed to have bounced back from its largest one day decline in more than seven years after Apple Inc cut its sales outlook. The S&P seems to have advanced at 7.7% , since its 20-month low on Christmas eve. Friday’s advance, measured by stocks rising versus failing, was the broadest in more than eight years.
Jerome Powell, who is the Federal Reserve chairman, assured the citizens as well as the economists that the central bank is sensitive to risks that worry the investors and is not keen on hiking interest rates. He said he would continue in the position even with all the pressure by President Donald Trump on him. SPLRCL materials and industrial stocks recorded largest percentage gains. Economists still believe that the market roller-coaster would continue throughout the week
