Dow briefly rises 150 pts as volatile trade continues

One of the major Wall Street indexes the Dow Jones briefly added 150 points on Friday, erasing the losses from earlier in the session when it turned negative for a while as the volatile trade continued in the United States. The markets jumped 400 points at the opening bell after a two-day selloff triggered by the fears of rising interest rates. The tech sector led the advances.

After rising around 150 points earlier, the Dow Jones Industrial Average index continued to trade in the green at 0.28%, up around 70 points at 7:32 pm CET. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 remained in the positive territory, extending gains from earlier by adding 0.48% while the Nasdaq 100 rose 1.58% at 7:33 pm CET.

The euro lost 0.31% against the US dollar to sell for 1.1557 at 7:34 pm CET.
