The monthly nonfarm payrolls report takes the spotlight next week as investors continue to look for guidance on the timing of an interest rate hike.

"Next week's big number will be at the end of the week with February employment," said Mike Mussio, managing director at FBB Capital Partners. We want "confirmation that (the) trend is improvement."

The key figure will be wage growth, which posted gains of 0.5 percent in January after a decline in December.
