U.S. stock index futures pointed to a higher open on Wednesday after a better-than-expected ADP jobs report and a oil bounced.
ADP said private payrolls increased by 205,000 in January, above the expected 195,000.
Futures extended gains after New York Fed President William Dudley reportedly said that continued tightening on conditions would weigh on the Fed.
Investors will also look to U.S. services data as economists expect the ISM nonmanufacturing index will fall to 55.1, from 55.3 in December, when it is reported at 10 a.m. ET. The ISM has not been below December's level since April 2014. Any number above 50 shows expansion. There is also ADP payrolls data at 8:15 a.m., a warm up to Friday's government report, and Markit services PMI data at 9:45 a.m.
