Stock futures are trimming their best weekly advance since April following a four-day rally that saw the S&P score daily gains in excess of 1% and a whole lot more for Big Tech. At the time of writing: Dow -0.5%; S&P 500 -0.7%; Nasdaq -1%.
As coronavirus infections surge across the nation the latest nonfarm payrolls report will be released at 8:30 a.m. ET, and is expected to show an increase of 600K jobs in October. Anything less than September’s 661K could confirm a continuing slowdown in growth, with the pace decelerating every month since June, when the economy added 4.8M jobs. The unemployment rate is expected to fall to 7.7% in October from 7.9% in September, while average hourly earnings are forecast rising 0.2% after gaining 0.1% last month.
