US: Wall St opens flat after strong US jobs data

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 4.27 points, or 0.02 per cent, at the open to 24,352.47. The S&P 500 opened higher by 1.07 points, or 0.04 per cent, at 2,737.68. The Nasdaq Composite gained 9.50 points, or 0.13 per cent, to 7,595.93 at the opening bell.
