The Dow Jones industrial average topped 17,000 for the first time Thursday, the index's first big 1,000-point milestone this year, following news that hiring in the U.S. accelerated last month. The market rose from the opening of trading after the government reported that U.S. employers hired more employees than investors and economists expected. Trading ended early ahead of the Independence Day holiday. U.S. markets will be closed Friday.
