Wall Street's muffled slide could continue this week as investors sit on their hands, waiting for Friday's December jobs report to confirm the Federal Reserve's view of a positive trend in the labor market.
"A primary reason the Fed started the taper is the jobs market seems to be improving, so the jobs number remains at the forefront," said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Asset Management, referring to the Fed's decision to begin reducing its bond-buying program this month, cutting $10 billion from what was $85 billion in monthly asset purchases.
"Certainly some investors are sitting at home like I am," said Paul Nolte, managing director at Dearborn Partners in Chicago, where brutal weather kept many indoors.
"If we look at the weekly jobless claims numbers, they are indicating a reasonably good payrolls report, probably 175,000 to 200,000," he said.
