Stock markets had mixed results for the week. On Friday, U.S. stocks got a lift from a strong jobs report and recovered from a mid-week stumble. Asian bourses were mixed; European markets were weighed down by disappointment over the European Central Bank’s stimulus plan. Gold rose, but oil prices plunged as OPEC decided to maintain current production levels. The ten-year U.S. Treasury yield began the week at 2.22% and rose to 2.27% by Friday’s close.
