CENTRAL, Hong Kong
- Oct. 12, 2021
-- The stocks were volatile and choppy throughout the day, which in turn would also be the best way to describe the whole week's trend.
S&P managed to squeeze out gains for the week even with all the volatility present, with majority of the increase thanks to the agreement reached for the debt limit increase. This allowed the government to avoid a default, which caused the stocks to go higher for the past few sessions.
Below are the main movement of the major stocks and yields in the US market, posted as of 4:00 p.m. New York time;
- NASDAQ Composite Index lost by 0.51% or 74.48 points and wrapped at 14,579.54.
- The S&P 500 Index went down by 0.19% or 8.34 points closing at 4,391.42.
- The Dow Jones Industrial Average moved lower with 0.02% or 8.23-point loss, to end at 34.746.71.

After the debt limit issue was resolved, traders focused on the jobs report, only to get a disappointing result for the month of September. Non-farm payrolls alone missed more than 300,000 from the consensus 500,000, which means the increase was only a little short of 200,000.
