[NEW YORK] Wall Street stocks powered higher Friday with the Dow surging further above 25,000 points as bullish investors shrugged off a disappointing US jobs report.

At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 25,295.87, up 0.9 per cent, its third straight record.

The broad-based S&P 500 gained 0.7 per cent to end at 2,743.15 and the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 0.8 per cent to 7,135.55, both setting new closing records for the fourth straight day.
