U.S. stock index futures traded higher on Friday morning as investors looked ahead to nonfarm payroll numbers due later in the day.
At 05:31 a.m. ET, Dow futures traded 82 points higher, implying a positive open of more than 50 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq also traded higher but pointed to a slightly negative open.
Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, after the U.S. and China agreed to hold high-level talks in early October. The news raised hopes that the world’s two largest economies could soon make substantial progress in de-escalating their protracted trade dispute.
