US stocks opened firmly Higher on Friday, rebounding after falling into a correction.
The Dow Jones industrial average gained as many as 335 points (1.4%).
The indexes later rolled over into the red and frequently swung between positive and negative territory.
The Dow was headed for a 7.7% weekly decline, its worst in nine years.
The worst of the sell-off began last week Friday, when data on wages showed inflation may be picking up and could prompt the Federal Reserve to combat it with higher interest rates.
This week, the Market sell-off was amplified by so-called " target volatility funds " that rushed to sell stocks and buy protection against higher volatility.
