U.S. markets are stabilizing at the end of a wild week.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 36 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,696 as of 9:35 a.m. Eastern time Friday.

The Standard and Poor's 500 index rose two points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,930. The Nasdaq fell 32 points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,345.

The stock market has been swinging sharply this week.

Energy stocks fell again early Friday as the price of oil continued to decline. U.S. crude declined 66 cents to $85.11 a barrel.

Electric car maker Tesla fell 5 percent in early trading as traders seemed disappointed by the company's announcement of a new all-wheel drive car late Thursday.

Bond prices were flat. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note held steady at 2.31 percent.
