PHILLIP SUMMARY

Stocks closed little changed on Friday after the release of disappointing jobs data, but posted back-to-back weekly gains on optimism around U.S.-China trade relations.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day up 0.3% at 26,797.46. The S&P 500 climbed just 0.1% to close at 2,978.71 while the Nasdaq Composite slipped 0.2% to 8,103.07.

For the week, the Dow and S&P 500 both gained at least 1.5% while the Nasdaq climbed 1.8%. Those gains came amid hopes that the world’s two largest economies could soon make substantial progress in de-escalating their protracted trade dispute.

Liu He, the country’s top trade negotiator, spoke by phone with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. They agreed to meet in early October for another round of trade negotiations, according to the Chinese Commerce Ministry.

The U.S. economy added 130,000 jobs in August, the Labor Department said Friday. This marked the third straight monthly slowdown in jobs growth.
