The averages bounced around after the market opened, but eventually found upside momentum and traded steadily higher throughout the day, closing near session highs. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 113,000 non-farm jobs were added last month, versus the expected increase of 180,000 jobs. The unemployment rate fell to 6.6%, hitting its lowest level since October 2008. U.S. consumer credit for December was reported at $18.8B, topping estimates for $12B and better than the revised November reading for $12.4B.

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following its earnings report was healthcare services company athenahealth (ATHN), up $34.85, or 25.06%, to $173.93, putting the stock's gains over the last year near 100%. Also higher was microblogging site Twitter (TWTR), up $4.32, or 8.63%, to $54.35 as the stock rebounded following its more than 20% decline during Thursday's session after its quarterly report.
