Holiday Trading Schedule | US Jobs Report | Game Plan July 2

holiday trading schedule

Expect light volume if you’re day trading today. A holiday trading schedule is never a bonus for active traders. Stocks tend to bounce around without purpose and it’s easy to get stuck in a bad position.

Stick to your best ideas today and don’t deviate from your trading plan. Not the day to go find new trades at 10am.

Have a great 3 day weekend!

Holiday Trading Schedule | US Jobs Report

U.S. stock futures steady ahead of June jobs report

U.S. stock futures edged higher Thursday, with Wall Street watching the key U.S. jobs report for clues to the Federal Reserve’s next move before wrapping up the holiday-shortened week.

Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average YMU5, +0.12% gained 31 points, or 0.2%, at 17,703.00, and those for the S&P 500 Index ESU5, +0.11% rose 4.4 points, or 0.2%, to 2,075.00. Futures for the Nasdaq 100 NQU5, +0.16% picked up 10.50 points, or 0.2%, at 4,432.25.

U.S. markets on Wednesday were partly bolstered by a stronger-than-expected reading on jobs growth in the private sector. The S&P 500 SPX, +0.69% rose 0.7% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.79% jumped 138.40 points, or 0.8%, to 17,757.91. The Nasdaq Composite COMP, +0.53% picked up 0.7%.

Each index, however, was still down about 1% for the week to date.

Developments in Greece’s debt crisis were also on investors’ radar Wednesday and are expected to stay there, as Athens presses ahead with Sunday’s bailout referendum.

Financial markets will be closed on Friday to observe the Independence Day holiday, which means the June nonfarm-payrolls report will be released by the Labor Department on Thursday, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time.

Economists polled by MarketWatch forecast a 225,000 gain and a drop in the unemployment rate to 5.4% from 5.5%. See: Five things to watch in June’s jobs report.

What to Expect From the June Jobs Report

At 8:30 a.m. Eastern, the Labor Department will report the latest data on hiring and the unemployment rate in June.

Despite some first-quarter economic weakness in the United States and recent turmoil in Europe and Asia, American companies have continued to hire. Most economists believe that the momentum will continue into the summer.

Here is what you should watch for:
