June 1 (Reuters) - The Dow Jones Industrial Average was set to open loweron Thursday after dismal earnings from Salesforce tempered optimism sparked by passage of a bill by lawmakers to suspend the nation's debt ceiling.

The bill to suspend the $31.4 trillion debt ceiling on Wednesday passed with majority support from both Democrats and Republicans and will now head to the Senate, which must enact the measure before a Monday deadline, when the government is expected to run out of money to pay its bills.

Shares of Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI component Salesforce Inc CRM.N fell 6.8% in premarket trading after the company posted its slowest pace of revenue growth in 13 years.

Even after the passage of the bill, trading remained in a narrow range as investors focused on economic indicators, which will set the tone for the U.S. Federal Reserve and provide more details on the impact of its aggressive interest rate-hiking cycle on the economy.

The ADP National Employment Report showed private payrolls increased 278,000 last month against expectations of 170,000 additions.

The ADP report comes before the Labor Department's closely watched May jobs data, due on Friday, which could decide whether a rate hike occurs.

Separately, data showed the Labor Department's initial claims for state unemployment benefits were at 232,000 lower than expectations of 235,000 for the week ended May 27.

The odds favoring a pause at the Fed's June 13-14 policy meeting remained at around 70%. Comments by the central bank's officials, who were leaning toward a momentary pause in hikes, had helped drive down bets for a hike on Wednesday. FEDWATCH

Comments from Fed Governor and vice chair nominee Philip Jefferson and Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker pointed to their inclination toward a rate hike "skip".

"The passage of the debt bill by Congress, certainly is positive as it moves on to the Senate but it also gives the Fed less opportunity to perhaps conclude with the restrictive monetary policy," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Spartan Capital Securities.

"So, a pause probably is not likely. Can they skip? That's a possibility, but with the jobs market being so strong and inflation elevated, it does pose a big question mark for the Fed."

At 8:44 a.m. ET, Dow e-minis 1YMcv1 were down 80 points, or 0.24%, S&P 500 e-minis EScv1 were up 1 points, or 0.02%, and Nasdaq 100 e-minis NQcv1 were down 6.5 points, or 0.05%.

Nordstrom Inc JWN.N gained 5.0% after the upmarket department store chain posted a surprise first-quarter profit, helped by better inventory control and demand from wealthy shoppers.

However, Macy's Inc M.N shed 4.7% and Dollar General Corp DG.N slid 9.4% as both retail companies cut their full-year sales forecasts amid high inflation. Inc AI.N slumped 19.7% after the artificial intelligence company forecast annual revenue outlook below street estimates.
