Another stellar non-farm payrolls report is likely on tap this morning, with the Labor Department set to release numbers for April at 8:30 a.m. ET. Non-farm payrolls are forecast to have increased by 978,000 in April, following a 916,000 jump in March, which marked the largest increase since last August. The unemployment rate is meanwhile expected to have slipped slightly to 5.8%, from 6% last month, driven by re-opening activity, a broad vaccine rollout and financial help from the federal government.
