    Several economic reports will affect trading today. The Automatic Data Processing (ADP) report on private-payroll creation showed that the U.S. economy added 208,000 jobs in September, largely at medium-sized businesses. This figure came in slightly higher than expected. Trade, transportation, and utility sectors added the bulk of the jobs, while financial services had the biggest job losses. Later in the day, the Institute for Supply Management’s Non-Manufacturing Activity Index, a survey of conditions in the services sector, is on the docket for release, giving investors a better view of inflation and how the economy is doing.

    The penultimate trading day of September, a month that has been a very difficult one for investors, historically, begins off a notable rally yesterday and with investors digesting a few economic reports. The futures, which were lower heading into the economic news, took another leg down and are presaging a weak opening to the trading day stateside.

    From a technical viewpoint, the S&P 500 Index has moved significantly lower over the past several weeks. In fact, the broader market average recently tested the lows reached in mid- June.
