  1. Jobs report exptends the Dow winning streak

    Stocks got an early boost from a better than expected jobs report. There was some profit taking after the initial opening spike, but the rest of the day saw a back and forth battle with the bulls grabbing a modest victory. There were 209,000 jobs added in July and the unemployment rate hit 4.3%. It looks pretty good but wages could have been better and the Fed was probably hoping to see more growth there.
