(AP) Stock futures are barely moving as markets await a trove of data on jobs, retail sales and the industrial and services sectors of the economy.

The numbers that roll out Thursday and Friday may determine if or how much the U.S. Federal Reserve pulls back on the asset purchases that have kept international markets flush with cash.

Dow Jones industrial futures are down 5 points to 14,919. S&P futures have lost less than a point to reach 1,653.20 Nasdaq futures are up 2.25 points to 3,130.50.

The payroll company ADP and the Labor Department release employment figures before the opening bell. Those are followed by reports on factory orders, productivity and the service sector, which employs 90 percent of the U.S. workforce.

On Friday, the U.S. releases its jobs report for August.
