U.S. stock futures edged up ahead of data that are expected to show a pickup in job creation and a lower unemployment rate.

Futures on the S&P 500, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq-100 all added 0.2%. Changes in equity futures don’t necessarily predict market moves after the opening bell.

European stocks climbed Friday for a two-day winning streak. The Stoxx Europe 600 gained 0.5% in morning trade. Utilities and energy sectors led gains while industrials and materials sectors lost ground.

The U.K.’s FTSE 100 rose 0.4%. Other regional indexes in Europe also mostly climbed as France’s CAC 40 gained 0.4%, the U.K.’s FTSE 250 rose 0.2%, and Germany’s DAX gained 0.5%.

The Swiss franc, the euro and the British pound depreciated 0.2%, 0.1% and 0.1% respectively against the U.S. dollar.
