Here's what's on the US market menu this week. What do you think — will the final pieces fall into place a week ahead of the next Fed meeting?
The economy is over its labor-market woes (for now). Up next? Inflation worries.
Preview: This afternoon's highly anticipated non-farm payrolls report may miss again. The Fed, meanwhile, is set to launch its own labor-market report on Monday — and you better believe traders will be watching.

Traders and analysts alike will be eyeing developments out of Scotland closely — and they'd be wise to. If the country votes to go independent, it means more than just a declining pound.
