After a muted midday performance, Wall Street closed the week in style despite a stronger-than-expected jobs report that sent Treasury yields surging. The Dow pared early-morning losses to add 288 points. However, it wasn't enough to stop the blue-chip index from logging its third-straight weekly loss. 

The Nasdaq also marked a triple-digit win --it's best since July 29 -- for a second consecutive week of gains. The S&P 500 logged its best single-session digit gain since Aug. 29 to snap a four-week losing streak and close above the key 4,300 level.
