Even though you’re still digesting what happened today, it’s not too early to get ready for tomorrow, which should be pretty epic.First, Europe, duh.

The panic in Italy is real and it’s only a matter of time before the banking system is infected. This doesn’t seem like something that Europe’s leaders can wait on.

Then of course there’s the Non-Farm Payrolls report, which has the potential to exacerbate the disaster if it comes in weak.

Officially, analysts are expecting 85K new jobs and 113K new private sector jobs. A huge miss, just like we got last month, when only 18K new jobs were created, would probably not be that shocking.

The headline unemployment rate is expected to stay at 9.2%.
