Oil extended it’s recent on fall on continued worries about the health of the global economy.
The U.S. dollar index and treasuries fell after this morning’s better than expected jobs data sent the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P higher, but the dollar then rallied back higher in afternoon trade and stocks erased most of their gains on speculation that today’s drop in the unemployment rate may shorten the fed’s QE3 program.
Among the big names making news in the market Friday were Lehman Brothers, Avon, Sprint, Blockbuster, and Zynga.
