"The private sector created 170,000 jobs in January, boosted again by a surge in service-sector employment, according a report from ADP and Macroeconomic Advisors. With economists looking for signs of life in the jobs market, the ADP number was close to consensus estimates and likely sets the stage for solid though not overwhelming overall growth when the government releases its monthly report Friday."
