Positive new job reports, low layoff numbers plus new China trade talks scheduled for October pushed indexes higher. For the week the Dow added 394 pts or 1.49%, the S&P rose 52 pts or 1.79%, while the NASDAQ climbed 140 pts or 1.77%. The Bureau of Labor statistics reported 130,000 new jobs in August & with jobless claims for last week rising slightly to 217,000. We'll be watching if the Fed holds, cuts or raises interest rates on Sept 17th. Have a good weekend! Julie
