Markets Move Higher To Close Third Quarter

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) – The markets moved higher on the final day of a volatile quarter.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average soared 235 points to finish the day at 16,284.80.

The NASDAQ closed up 103 points, finishing at 4,620.16, while the S&P 500 rose 35 points to end the day at 1,920.03.

The markets close out the third quarter with losses. Over the last few months, investor fear has been driven by China’s shaky economy and an impending decision from the Federal Reserve over whether to raise interest rates.

Payroll processor ADP says private employers added 200,000 jobs this month, up from the 180,000 the month before.  The government's jobs report is due out on Friday.
