The Dow Jones Industrial Average was on track for over 100 points in gains this morning as investors awaited the November employment report the government will release today.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are resuming discussions about a stimulus relief package, and McConnell is hopeful a compromise can be reached before year’s end.

The government’s look at November employment was due out today at 8:30 a.m., and analysts anticipated slower growth in jobs and a decreased unemployment rate when compared to October.
Unemployment would fall to 6.7% from its October rate of 6.9%, and the jobs added would tally only 440,000, after October’s 638,000.
“Our growth forecast for the first quarter is zero,” said Bank of America economist Michael Gapen. “There’s short term pain in front of us. We don’t think it will extend much past the first quarter if all the news on the timelines for the vaccine are correct. By the end of the first quarter, things will be looking much better.”
