Wall Street is eyeing more data Friday that suggests a still-hot labor market and, potentially, more action by the Federal Reserve to bring down inflation. Stocks sold off Thursday after a better-than-expected private sector jobs report, with the Dow falling 300 points. All three major indexes are on their way to a losing week to start the new year.

The December jobs report from the Labor Department came in at 223,000 jobs added. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected to see growth of 200,000 in nonfarm payrolls and an unemployment rate holding steady at 3.7%. On Thursday, private payrolls came in better than expected, rising by 235,000 jobs, according to a report from ADP. Wall Street had expected private payroll adds of 153,000.

The House adjourned for a third night on Thursday without a speaker, after GOP leader Kevin McCarthy was defeated in an 11th vote.
