U.S. stock futures point to a higher open, on track for a 4th straight days of gains and at the same time, register their best weekly gain of 2019 as markets dial back concern about trade talk and turn their attention to the potential for interest rate cuts from the Fed to help boost the economy. Today’s monthly nonfarm payroll will give the Fed more details on the health of the economy, with jobs data expected around 8:30 AM EST (est. 175K nonfarm payrolls, 172K private payrolls and unemployment rate to hold at 3.6%). The data follows a surprisingly weak ADP private payrolls report showed slowest job growth in over 9-years. A weak jobs report will likely raise calls for more Fed easing on interest rates to help stimulate growth, while a strong jobs report may cloud the rate situation. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 110 points to 20,884, the Shanghai Index and Hang Seng Index were both closed for holiday. In Europe, the German DAX is higher by about 95 points to 12,050, while the FTSE 100 is higher by over 50 points to 7,315. In corporate news, recent 2019 IPO’s BYND and ZM are both sharply higher overnight after their first quarterly earnings reports as public companies. Regarding trade, U.S. President Donald Trump has warned that tariffs of 5% on all Mexican exports to the United States will go into effect on Monday (delaying it a few days) if Mexico does not step up efforts to stem an increase in mostly Central American migrants heading for the U.S. border.
