"There is nothing to be disappointed about, as this morning's jobs report came in right in line across every metric. We would have liked to have seen an upside surprise, but we didn't. We have slow and steady improvement in the economy, and slow and steady improvement in the earnings," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities.
"It's not enough of an upside surprise to increase volume in this market," Hogan added.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.567 percent from 2.581 percent ahead of the jobs report.
