Stocks set for higher open after jobs data


U.S. stocks are set to slightly decline at the open of the trading session Thursday morning, seemingly continuing Wednesday's drops after the Federal Reserve's somewhat disappointing statement regarding the economic recovery. The two-day G-20 summit is also beginning Thursday and investors will watch world leaders for clues on future plans. This morning employment and housing data are scheduled to be reported.

[Update: Stock futures changed direction after both initial and continuing claims came in lower and are now pointing to a higher start.]
