March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures reversed from a record high on Friday as investors digested weaker-than-expected jobs data to end a volatile week full of geopolitical concerns. Earlier in the session, the Dow cash and futures crossed above 29,000 for the first time ever.

Profit-taking was most likely behind the selling, but the weakness was also fueled by shares of Boeing, which dropped more than 1% on Friday to lead the Dow lower.

At 21:13 GMT, March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 28783, down 146 or -0.50%.
