A sign marks the entrance to a job fair in New YorkThe signs of a robust jobs market could ease concerns about the health of the economy, which were underscored by other reports on Tuesday showing a drop in small business confidence in January to a two-year low and further declines in wholesale inventories. "If the labor market is tightening, can the economy really be faltering?" said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors in Holland, Pennsylvania. The so-called JOLTS report is among the data watched by Federal Reserve officials to get a pulse on both the labor market and inflation.

A trader works at the New York Stock Exchange, Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016. Stock markets have been in a slump so far this year after a lackluster 2015.

(AP Photo/Mark Lennihan)The major U.S. stock indexes moved modestly higher in late-afternoon trading Monday after spending much of the day veering between gains and losses.

People vote at a polling place at the Canterbury Town Hall polling station in Canterbury, New HampshireBy James Oliphant and Amanda Becker MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) - Donald Trump battled to stay ahead of a charging field of Republican rivals in New Hampshire on Tuesday and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders sought a big win over Hillary Clinton as long lines of voters suggested a heavy turnout for the state's first-in-the-nation presidential primary. Trump, a New York billionaire, and Sanders, a Vermont senator and democratic socialist, were favored to win their races, riding a wave of voter anger at traditional politicians seeking their parties' presidential nomination. Trump was under pressure to deliver a victory after he was beaten in the first nominating contest - the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1 - by Texas Senator Ted Cruz despite having had a big lead in pre-caucus polls.
