There was a sign of optimism in the markets this week (shortened by Monday's Fourth of July respite) as the S&P 500 was up 1.9% over the four days of trading, while the Dow Industrial Average inched up by 0.8%. The Nasdaq had the biggest comeback, climbing 4.6% during the week.
Investors weren't shaken by the Labor Department reporting that 372,000 jobs were added in June, which was almost 100,000 more than economists had expected.
