All eyes are on the June jobs report released next Friday after American employers added more jobs in May than anticipated. The May jobs report was slightly stronger than investors had expected, as the U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in May, the Labor Department reported Friday. The unemployment rate ticked higher to 7.6 percent. 

Revisions to March and April figures show that the economy added 12,000 fewer jobs than originally reported during those months. The labor force participation rate was little changed at 63.4 percent.
