Strong Private Payrolls Data May Aggravate Rate Worries
The major U.S. index futures are pointing to a lower opening on Wednesday, with sentiment negative amid the release of strong private payrolls data. ADP’s report showed that the private sector in the U.S. added more jobs than had been anticipated. The strong data may re-ignite monetary policy fears. Meanwhile, weak manufacturing activity data across the Atlantic has generated weakness in the European markets. Revised estimates released by Markit showed that the German manufacturing sector contracted for the first time in 15 months in September. The domestic markets now turn to the results of a national manufacturing survey for further clarity

10/1/2014 4:21:54 PM Stocks moved sharply lower over the course of the trading day on Wednesday, adding to the modest weakness seen in the two previous sessions. With the losses on the day, the major averages fell to their lowest closing levels in over a month.
