U.S. stock index futures rose on Friday despite the release of a disappointing jobs report.
Dow Jones industrial average futures rose 67 points, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures gained 7.25 points and 26.25 points, respectively.
The U.S. economy added 156,000 jobs in August. Economists polled by Reuters expected 180,000 jobs to have been added last month.
In addition to missing estimates, previous months' job totals also were cut. June was revised down from 231,000 to 210,000 while July fell from the initially reported 209,000 to 189,000, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said.
