By Steve Goldstein, MarketWatch
British stocks turned higher on Friday after the latest jobs data showed employment growth in the U.S. slowing but not ending.
U.S. jobs growth was 136,000 in September, which was a bit below expectations but also was accompanied by data showing the unemployment rate fell to a near 50-year-low of 3.5%.
The FTSE 100 climbed 0.7% to 7126.46.
