The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Friday closed up 330 points, or 1.4 percent, after a rocky day that saw it span a range of more than 800 points. Friday's end-of-day buying also boosted the S&P index up 1.5 percent. Over the course of the week, the Dow traveled some 20,000 points, CNBC notes, fluctuations that stem from a strong January jobs report that "sparked … inflation fears and worries that interest rates could rise faster than expected," USA Today writes. Overall, the Dow closed Friday down 6.2 percent from Monday's opening bell. "I just think the market has to find new footing here," said Peter Tuz, president of Chase Investment Counsel. "We are in very sloppy territory."
