Friday will likely be the biggest day of the week, because of the nonfarm payrolls report for the month of September, scheduled to be released at 8:30 a.m. EDT.Krill said that economists will be looking for 180,000 jobs and a 7.3% unemployment rate. Umar added that if results come in higher than expectations, it will once again raise questions over when the Federal Reserve will begin tapering.
