The markets made some modest gains today despite a light day of trading ahead of the government jobs report due out tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a report from Challenger, Gray & Christmas showed a 20 increase in planned layoffs in November from the prior month.
Job cuts in the food services sector led the way, as the bankruptcy of Hostess Brands put thousands out of work.
