Stocks rose after the Labor Department said February’s jobs report topped estimates. Volume, a critical gauge of institutional demand, was reported higher than the prior session on the Nasdaq exchange and the NYSE. Advancers trumped decliners by over a 4-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and over a 3-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq exchange. New 52-week highs still overwhelmingly trumped new lows on both exchanges.
