HERE COMES THE MOST IMPORTANT JOBS REPORT IN A LONG TIME

This is it folks!

At 8:30 AM ET, we’ll get the most important jobs report in a long time.

  • The market is in its first real fall in a while.
  • Everyone’s talking about when the Fed will exit QE, and the jobs picture is a crucial component of the Fed’s analysis.

In the meantime, US futures are modestly in the red.
