Before the bell: Stocks gain, loonie jumps after jobs data

The Before the Bell report is constantly updated to reflect the latest news developments and market moves in the premarket. Check back later for updates.

U.S. and Canadian stock futures have extended early morning gains on the release of U.S. non-farm payrolls data, which came in just a tad below consensus expectations. S&P 500 and Dow futures are now up more than 0.4 per cent, double the advance from prior to the 830 a.m. (ET) data.
