Bank technology stocks generally rose for the week, in lockstep with the broader stock and bond markets that were buoyed by economic news suggesting no immediate rise in interest rates.

The Labor Department said Friday the economy lost 40,000 jobs in September. Contrasted with an expected gain of 170,000 jobs, the indicator sent the Dow Jones industrial average closer to the 6,000 milestone. It closed at 5,992.82 Friday, up 119.94 points for the week.
