Tech Sell-Off Pushes US Market To Weekly Losses Amid Weak Jobs, Omicron

VIX volatility index climbs above 30 level for second time this week.

A major sell-off in technology company stocks pushed US market to close lower and post weekly declines amid weak jobs report of last month and omicron COVID-19 variant worries.

US economy added 210,000 jobs in November, going much lower than market estimate of 550,000 in November, and showing that the labor market in the world's largest economy is far from full recovery.
After the first case of the omicron variant seen in the state of California, Minnesota became the second state in the country to see the new variant and New York state confirmed five cases of omicron, which created fear and uncertainty among investors.
In a highly volatile week, the VIX volatility index, known as the fear index, soared 10% to 30.75 for the second time this week -- a level that was last seen on March 5.
