Oil fell 4% after Saudi Arabia’s comments about Iran cast doubt that a deal can be reached to freeze output.

 

The U.S. dollar index initially jumped higher after the release of this morning’s jobs report, but it then fell back off into the close and ended slightly lower on that view that it won’t ultimately influence the fed towards raising interest rates.

 

Treasuries traded mixed as the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P rose to see almost 1% gains by the close on decent economic data along with easy monetary policy.

 

Among the big names making news in the market Friday were GM, Fiat, Chrysler, Tesla, and Vale.
