Investing.com - Stocks were rallying strongly Friday afternoon, with their best one-day gains in a month, after a positive jobs report that allayed fears of recession and showed few signs of inflation.

  • The S&P 500 was up 1.12%. The Dow Jones industrials were up 1.1%. The Nasdaq Composite gained nearly 1.2%, with the Nasdaq 100 index, dominated by big tech stocks, up nearly 1.4%. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), up 2.8%, and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), ahead by 1.2%, contributed a third of the Nasdaq 100's 100-point gain.

  • The jobs report showed payrolls growing by 136,000 in September. But estimates for August and July were revised higher and the jobless rate hit a 50-year low.

  • Since its Thursday bottom, the Dow has climbed more than 750 points. The major indexes are still off about 1% on the week.

    Comment Guidelines

    We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

    •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

    •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

    •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

    • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
    • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
    • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
    • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
    • Only English comments will be allowed.

    Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.

    Once you've reached the top, only way is slowly down. Time for the Fed to step back and let market forces take over .
