Wall Street looks set to continue a record-setting climb to end the week, with all eyes on the key jobs report.
Here's what you need to know before the open:
1. Economic data to watch: Investors will be watching as May's jobs report come out at 8:30 a.m. ET. Economists surveyed by CNNMoney expect that 200,000 jobs were created in May, down from 288,000 in April.
"Today we get a chance to see how many jobs have been added to the economy and there's a good deal of hope that we're going to be north of 200,000," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist for Wunderlich Securities, who forecasts a gain of 253,000.
3. Stocks to watch: Bank of America(BAC) may have a rocky day -- it is edging down 1% ahead of the open, after government sources said that the bank was negotiating a deal with the Justice Department that could lead to a $12 billion settlement related to the bank's mortgage banking practices.
It's also worth keeping an eye on Credit Suisse(CS) and Facebook(FB, Tech30) today -- both are among the top 10 most active during pre-market trading on the Nasdaq.
4. International markets: European markets jumped in midday trading, led by a 1.3% rise in Spain, as the ECB's stimulus package continued to bolster appetite for riskier assets. London's FTSE 100 climbed 0.4%. The euro slipped 0.1% against the dollar.
Most Asian markets closed in the red, with Hong Kong's Hang Seng losing 0.7% and China's Shanghai Composite dropped 0.5%. Japan's Nikkei was little changed. India's Sensex rose 1.5%.
