Factors Influencing the Market

Investors eagerly await the release of the nonfarm payrolls data at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time. Analysts anticipate that around 170,000 jobs were created in August, marking the lowest figure since December 2020 when 268,000 jobs were lost.
Duy further highlighted the significance of the Institute for Supply Management manufacturing data, expected to be released at 10 a.m. Eastern. He mentioned, "While markets expect more of the same ho-hum data, a break above 50 would be psychologically important."
