Contracts on the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 slumped after US firms added more jobs than forecast in December, according to data from ADP Research Institute in collaboration with Stanford Digital Economy Lab. Stock futures fell further after initial jobless claims for the week ending Dec. 31 came in lower than estimates.

Treasuries extended their slide, with the 10-year yield around 3.75%. The dollar gained.

Investors are now awaiting nonfarm payrolls on Friday for further clues on the labor market and its implications for monetary policy, after Fed minutes showed officials cautioned against underestimating their will to keep interest rates high for some time. Traders are still pricing in rate cuts by end-2023.

“Pricing in the market still shows that investors continue to bet that the Fed will start cutting rates before the end of this year,” said Ipek Ozkardeskaya, senior analyst at Swissquote Bank. “Yes, there are some data pointing at slowing economic activity in the US, but the jobs market – which is closely watched by the Fed – remains surprisingly tight.”

Elsewhere, crude oil clawed back some losses after falling 9.5% in the past two days, with traders assessing the outlook for China’s demand and the impact of cold US weather on inventories.
