Here comes the jobs report …

The January jobs report will be released at 8:30 a.m. ET.
Economists forecast that employers added 180,000 nonfarm payrolls on net last month. And, they expect that the unemployment rate remained at a 17-year low of 4.1%, according to Bloomberg.
Many of the economic data points that precede the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ report on Friday point to a still-strong labor market, even after softer-than-expected gains in December. They include readings on unemployment claims, job openings, and even anecdotal complaints from employers who want to hire but can’t find people with the skills they want.
