Week 35 in brief

North America

Stocks in the US fell on Friday to end their third straight weekly decline. Despite a small rally on Friday morning, as investors were briefly comforted by the jobs report which showed the economy added 315,000 jobs for the month, stocks fell later in the day to end the day and week in losses. All major US indices ended the day in the red zone.

The jobs report also indicated that the unemployment rate rose to 3.7%, but investors still believe the Fed is yet to slow down on interest rates. Wall Street analysts still believe the central bank will enforce a 75-basis-point hike on the oncoming September meeting.
