Stocks closed slightly down on Friday trading in New York. The main reason for the decrease was the strong US data related to jobs and thus sifting the possible Federal Reserve rate cut, which was expected to be in the Fed´s July meeting.

Dow Jones index closed down 0,16 % to 26922 points, S&P 500 index closed down 0,18 % to 2990 points and technology-heavy Nasdaq-index 0,10 % to 8161 points.

The Friday losers included for example the health care, industrials and real estate sectors. The gaining side included financials. From the new listings sector, the ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft were down, -1,58 % and -2,00 % respectively. Slack, the it-company, closed down 1,33 % to 35,52 dollars and Pinterest also down 0,80 % to 27,25 dollars.

The euro was down 0,51 % to 1,1225 dollars due to the weak German economic data.
