A day after dropping more than 1,000 points, the Dow rebounded Friday morning along with other indexes. Analysts cited concerns about inflation and ballooning government debt for the earlier drops.

Early in Friday’s trading session, the Dow Jones industrial average was up more than 300 points, or 1.3 percent, the S&P 500 was up 35 points, or 1.4 percent, and the Nasdaq index was up 92 points, or 1.3 percent.

With Thursday’s 4 percent drop, the U.S. stock market had officially entered a correction, when major indexes are down at least 10 percent from their recent peaks.
