* Futures up: Dow 0.20%, S&P 500 0.24%, Nasdaq 0.21%
Sept 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures ticked higher on Monday, as mixed global economic data drove expectations of monetary stimulus from central banks, including the U.S. Federal Reserve.
Stocks were set to extend gains from last week, which ended with Fed Chairman Jerome Powell saying the Fed would "act as appropriate" to sustain economic expansion, a phrase that financial markets have read as signs of an interest rate cut ahead.
Bets of a potential rate cut by the Fed gained ground after data showed the U.S. economy added fewer-than-expected jobs in August.
Traders see a 91.2% chance of a quarter percentage point cut in Fed's September policy meeting, up from 90% on Friday, according to CME's FedWatch.
The European Central Bank is also expected to cut rates later this week.
The benchmark S&P 500 gained 1.8% last week as a slew of positive global economic news, including China's decision to slash bank reserve requirements, more than offset mixed set of domestic economic data.
