The Nasdaq composite gained 63 points, or 1.6%, Friday because data showed the pace of job creation has slowed, suggesting the economy might be headed towards a soft landing.

The Dow Jones Industrial average also gained 155 points, or 1.5%.

A soft landing would be good for stocks because it would eliminate the need for more interest rate increases.
