Trading Radar: Investors Fret Over Employment Numbers

By

Stay one step ahead of the rest.

PrintPRINT
After a long two weeks, earnings reports will take a back seat next week as most of the S&P 500 has already reported results. That's not to say investors won't be curious as to what Cisco (CSCO), Proctor Gamble (PG), Archer-Daniels Midland (ADM), and Pulte Homes (PHM) have to say when they report next week.

However, most market participants will be focused on the nonfarm payrolls number. June's number was particularly bad as it undermined the green-shoot economic recovery theory. It also put a damper on consumer confidence numbers as the country starts to come to terms with the face that nearly 1/10 Americans are out of work.

When the number is reported next Friday, analysts are estimating a loss 330,000 which would push the unemployment rate up to 9.6%.
