Ryan Detrick, chief market strategist at LPL Financial, a U.S. investment agency, said: “The uncertainty regarding the Omi Keron strain is high, coupled with disappointing employment data, investors decided to spend the weekend Before selling the stocks in hand.”
The November Employment Report released by the U.S. Department of Labor showed that employment growth in the United States last month was lower than expected. The number of non-agricultural employment in the United States increased by only 210,000 in November, far below the 573,000 predicted by Dow Jones survey economists.
However, the unemployment rate in the United States dropped sharply to 4.2% in November, better than the expected 4.5%.
As investors continue to digest the news about the Omi Keron strain and its impact on investors, the trend of US stocks on Friday continued the previous high volatility. Five states in the United States have found cases of Omi Kiron strain, and the symptoms reported so far are mild.
Although the Dow rebounded on Thursday, rising by more than 600 points, the index has fallen by 0.9% this week. The S&P 500 Index fell 1.2% this week, and the Nasdaq Composite Index fell 2.6%.
