The US markets closed lower Friday after a disappointing jobs report.  The U.S. economy added a less than expected 80,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department said Friday.  "The obvious concern is that this is the start of a slowdown that will lead to another recession," Capital Economics said in a report. "Although it is very clear that the U.S. economy has lost a lot of momentum, there are no real indications that it will soon come to a complete standstill or even go into reverse."
