US stocks rally after jobs report

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The stock markets in the US rallied on Friday, ignoring the drop in the oil prices, as investors cheered the strong US non-farm payrolls report.

At the time of writing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was trading 215 points higher at 17,698. The S&P 500 was up 1%, while the Nasdaq was up 1.20%. Some of the gains seen today are also due to recovery after Thursday's sharp sell-off.

Among the DJIA stocks, Chevron and Exxon Mobil fell 1.6% and 1%, respectively, tracking the losses in the oil prices. Meanwhile, Apple shares rose more than 2% and pulled up the index. Treasury yields traded weak, spiking on the report before trading lower.
