The U.S. Stock market finished on an up note Friday after a roller coaster week that saw the Dow Jones industrial average and S&P 500 dramatically plummet.


The Dow Jones industrial average ended Friday up 330 points while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq composite were also up by around 1 percent.


The upswing comes after the Dow fell 1,032 points on Thursday — the second drop of that magnitude this week. At Thursday’s close, the Dow was on track for its largest weekly drop since 2008.


The index’s tumultuous week kicked off last Friday, as stocks slid to 666 after the monthly jobs report showed an increase in wages. The data sparked worry from experts concerned on a possible inflation rise.
