Dow futures up 230 points after ADP jobs report shows a cooler-than-expected 2.76 million job losses in May
U.S. stock-index futures Wednesday morning added to solid gains after a private-sector labor-market report came in much cooler than expected. Data from Automatic Data Processing Inc. showed that 2.76 million jobs were lost in May, but that figure was far weaker than consensus expectations for a loss of jobs 8.663 million, compared with April's tally for a loss of 20.236 million. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were up 230 points, or 0.9%, at 25,930, those for the S&P 500 index were up 0.6% at 3,096, while Nasdaq-100 futures were gaining 0.4% at 9,685. The ADP data come ahead of U.S. unemployment figures in the nonfarm private sector that will disclosed on Friday, and will likely show that unemployment in the U.S. for May has approached 19% amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
