Wall Street finished Thursday slightly lower, as cautious investors awaited tomorrow's key nonfarm payrolls report. Today's jobs data pushed Treasury yields higher, though the 10-year note remained below its 2007-level highs. For the session, the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq all closed just below breakeven, with the three benchmarks briefly trading in the black later in the day before ultimately paring those marginal gains.
