Futures rise after payrolls data

By @ibtimes on

Stock index futures added to gains on Friday after data showed the economy created more jobs in February than anticipated and the unemployment rate unexpectedly ticked lower.

S&P 500 futures rose 3.9 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 gained 46 points and Nasdaq 100 futures added 5.25 points.
