Jeremy Glaser: Jobs will be in the spotlight with the employment report on Friday. Beyond just the number of jobs added, the market will be looking for signs that a tighter labor market is leading to wage growth.

The ISM manufacturing index, auto sales, and factory orders will provide a reading on the state of the industrial economy.

In earnings, Costco reports Thursday. The firm has largely been able to insulate itself from e-commerce competition, according to analyst John Brick, and we'll see if that trend continues. Other reports on tap include Yum China, Constellation Brands, Pepsico, and Lennar.

Stay tuned for our take on these stories.
