The Before the Bell report is compiled by editors of The Globe and Mail and is updated throughout the morning to reflect latest developments. Colin Cieszynski, Chartered Financial Analyst and Chartered Market Technician, is chief market strategist with CMC Markets.

U.S. stock index futures extended losses on Friday after a Labor Department report showed that 98,000 jobs were added in the public and private sector in March, far lower than economists’ estimate of 180,000. After the report was released, U.S. stock futures fell further, down about 0.1 per cent. The TSX 60 futures also fell despite a strong jobs report from Canada.
