The Dow finally hit the 17,000 mark at the open today, after flirting with the milestone for the past two sessions. Good news from the jobs front gave stocks a nudge higher but traders appeared cautious given speculation this new data will give the Federal Reserve reason to raise interest rates sooner than expected.
