Investing.com - Stocks on Wall Street ended higher in another volatile session on Friday, clawing back some of their hefty losses for the week, as tech shares rallied.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 359 points, or 1.3%, to close at 27,173.

The S&P 500 rose 1.6% to 3,298, while the Nasdaq Composite surged 2.2% to settle at 10,913.

Despite Friday’s rally, both the Dow and S&P 500 suffered their fourth weekly loss in a row, their longest losing streak since August 2019. The Dow fell 1.8% on the week while the S&P 500 declined 0.6% over the same timeframe.

The Nasdaq meanwhile had its first weekly gain in four weeks, rising 1.1%.

U.S. stocks could face more volatility next week as President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden face off in their first debate ahead of the November 3 elections.

The debate – the first of three – will take place in Cleveland, Ohio on Tuesday from 9:00PM ET to 10:30PM ET.

Betting services currently view the race as almost a coin flip, though Biden currently has a modest lead in the polls.

Uncertainty related to the election, including the possibility of a delay in announcing a winner, has weighed on market sentiment in recent weeks, with the S&P 500 tumbling 10% from its record high earlier this month.

According to the recent reported discovery, Trump has paid no federal income taxes whatsoever in 10 of the past 15 years. Should a president and so called millionaire be at least a decent and honest person???

While added about $14 trillion national debt in less than 4 years, had a record of negative 20% GDP growth and 30% of unemployment in the last quarter, have had over 20,0000 Americans killed of COVID19, caused one of the worst riots in US history, Trump has proved to be very incapable in leading this country. Biden is sleepy, but as a capitalist country,  US can certainly do well with a less functional president which is better than a destructive president.

Jay West it is the resposibility of a leader to set the tone. He failed in doing this, and thus, 200k deaths are the result. Every action we take has its repurcussions and what we are dealing with are our leaders have dealt us. Im very interested to see how this plays out

I attended the Trump rally last week in. Jacksonville. There must have been 30k people there. I didn't see any protesters or Biden supporters, however there must have been at least 3 there because that's the main thing the fake media showed. I truely believe Mr. Trump loves this country, and thank God he is our president now! Also if you ride around in North Florida streets the vast majority of signs and supporters are for Trump!

Get out the popcorn for the debate! If Biden even gets a couple of coherent sentences out they will say he won, the bar has been set so low. Kamila will be the big winner if Biden pulls it off. I give Joe 3 months before he is considered unfit to lead.

Funny. The Trump campaign and their supporters are actually the ones who have "set the bar so low" with their 'dementia' propaganda, Trump's unfounded claims of 'stimulant drug use' and the campaign's many intentionally manipulated video clips of Biden that are posted completely out of context. Trump, meanwhile, has plenty of his own gaffes, and incoherent sentences, but we're just so used to the strange way he talks now that people don't always notice.

Given Trump's appalling record, if Biden can't take this debate by a good margin he doesn't deserve to win. The downside of this would be an even more cranky, crazy four more years. As the US passes 209,000 covid deaths, with another thirty-eight days of deaths to count before the election Trump's estimates of peak deaths of zero, 60,000, 75,000, 80,000, 100,000, maybe even 200,000 (a terrible number, etc, etc, but still great result, by his own assessment of his performance), Trump must be looking vulnerable. The only issue he's leading on is the economy and even that is shaky. He seems to think 'economy' and stock market are interchangeable terms.

this makes no sense. Trump can't read write or speak. He slurs his words at every rally. And can barley finish a complete sentence.. Has a "sniffing " problem. He can't stand up straight or walk normal or even sit a chair comfortably. And the make up? come on. plus the never ending lies

ad sm  Trump cannot walk down a ramp hold a glass in one hand,stand at the podium without hanging on for dear life, and certainly cannot tell the truth. If he goes off the teleprompter he babbles on and on about everything being the best thing ever, even when 200,000 people have dies and some may never recover. He has surrounded himself with crooks like himself but the truth is, "always follow the money" and it is just starting to come out!
