Actually government comes out Friday, private estimate of that number comes out today.

Not pretty.

Futures on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index expiring this month slumped 0.3 percent to 993.3 at 8:18 a.m. in New York after ADP Employer Services said private employers cut 298,000 jobs last month, topping the average economist estimate of 250,000. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures lost 0.2 percent to 9,284.
