At 8:15 AM ET, we’ll get the ADP jobs report.

Economists expect ADP to tell us that 165,000 payrolls were added by U.S. companies in May, up from 119,000 in April.

This is the first of the major May labour market indicators building up to this Friday’s official jobs report published by the Bureau of labour Statistics.
