    01.04.2016 16:30 Wall Street. Major U.S. stock-indexes little changed

    Major U.S. stock-indexes recouped early losses on Friday, helped by healthcare stocks, as investors assessed data pointing to a strong recovery in the U.S. economy. Gains were limited by a nearly 4 percent fall in crude prices amid increasing skepticism around a deal to freeze crude production. The Labor Department's report showed solid gains in nonfarm payrolls in March, underscoring the economy's resilience amid risks from a weak global economy. While the unemployment rate rose to 5% from an eight-year low of 4.9%, it was because more Americans continued to return to the labor force. A separate report showed the U.S. manufacturing sector resumed growth in March, bolstered by strength in new orders.
