Last week was a good one for the bears as they were able to take the S&P 500 down nearly 40 points from its mid-week high. The sell-off has left investors wondering if the "bear market rally" is over.

Next week, most market participants will be focused on the non-farm payrolls number. The number will be released on Friday and analysts are looking for it to come in at -188k compared to last month's -216k, which is improving but still not positive.

Analysts also expect the unemployment rate to hit 9.8%, inching closer to the psychologically important 10% number.
