U.S. stock-index futures point to more gains

U.S. stock-index futures pointed to more gains for Wall Street on Monday, about nine hours ahead of the market open. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +1.24% the Nasdaq 100 and the S&P 500SPX, +1.12% were all quoted at levels implying a 0.3% gain from Friday's close. Still, the futures can sometimes change significantly once European markets open. U.S. shares saw solid gains Friday on the back of upbeat September employment data, with the Dow industrials gaining 1.2%, while the Nasdaq Composite COMP, +1.03% rose 1%, and the S&P 500 added 1.1%.
