The Dow Soars 700 Points

The Dow Jones Industrial Average kept on rolling on Friday trading. The Dow was up 724 points, or 2.2%, around 2:40 p.m. Eastern. The S&P 500 index was up 1.5% while the Nasdaq Composite was up 1.1%. The materials, energy, and industrials sectors of the S&P 500 were leading the charge, after relief about the debt ceiling bill and signs of a soft landing in the May jobs report sparked a broader rally.

"The [jobs] data, coupled with the debt ceiling process winding its way toward conclusion, and expectations that the Fed will 'skip' its June 14 meeting for raising rates, has helped spark a rally that is more broad-based than what the market has been experiencing with mega-cap technology names leading the S&P 500 and Nasdaq higher,"
