As investors return from their August vacations, the focus this week will be on the Employment report due out on Friday. Leading up to that, several other key releases, such as ISM Manufacturing and Durable Goods, will be on the minds of investors.

Friday’s employment report is expected to confirm the continued strength of the labor market in the United States and likely pave the way for a September rate hike from the FOMC. In addition to the employment report, ADP Employment Change is due out on Thursday and that number is expected at 190,000, compared to 219,000 in July.

Below we highlight all of the economic data due out this week and highlight the key releases.
