And we're getting ready for what's expected to be the other major news of the morning — the 8:30 a.m. ET announcement from the Bureau of Labor Statistics about the September unemployment rate and how many jobs were or were not added to payrolls last month.
Bloomberg News says the consensus among 91 economists it surveyed is that payrolls grew by only about 55,000 jobs and the jobless rate probably stayed at 9.1 percent for the third straight month.
