US Markets Claw Back Gains, But Continued Volatility Expected

Friday closed out the best week for the S&P 500 since November, with the index gaining 2.8%, as crude oil and banks regained some losses. The rise has led traders to wonder whether stocks are bouncing back from their dip at the start of the year, or if low oil prices and weak global demand will continue to drag down the markets. Peter Costa, Governor with the New York Stock Exchange and President of Empire Executions, told VOA the choppy trading is likely to continue.
