US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Futures edge higher after jobs data

NEW YORK, Nov 3 (BestGrowthStock) – U.S. stock index futures
extended meager gains on Wednesday after data showed U.S.
private employers added more jobs in October than economists
forecast.

S&P 500 futures (SPc1: ) rose 1.6 points and were above fair
value, a formula that evaluates pricing by taking into account
interest rates, dividends and time to expiration on the
contract. Dow Jones industrial average futures (DJc1: ) gained 18
points and Nasdaq 100 futures (NDc1: ) added 2 points.

Private employers added 43,000 jobs in October compared
with a revised loss of 2,000 jobs in September, according to a
report by a payrolls processor. [ID:nEAP103300]

S&P 500 futures traded at their highest in six months.
