NEW YORK – Wall Street made a muted advance Friday but still finished the week lower after a better-than-expected employment report raised hopes about the economy’s strength despite the recent hurricanes. The major indexes each lost more than 2 percent for the week. The market came back Friday from three straight days of losses after the Labor Department said September payrolls, while down for the first time in two years, fell by only 35,000 jobs. Fearing an economic slump in the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, economists had forecast a drop of 150,000. But while the Dow Jones industrial average rose as much as 60 shortly after the opening bell, stocks gave up most of their gains throughout the day amid some skepticism about the report. Investors also awaited greater clarity about the economy’s health from upcoming third-quarter earnings and forward-looking estimates. Meanwhile, a rise in oil prices broke a five-day slide as traders looked past news that U.S. fuel consumption declined last month amid expectations for increased demand this winter. A barrel of light crude added 48 cents to settle at $61.84 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
