Good morning,

European stock-index futures dropped and Asian shares fell to their lowest level in a month before U.S. payrolls data. French bonds declined after Standard & Poor’s downgraded the nation, while oil gained.

The U.S. probably added 120,000 jobs last month, according to a survey of analysts, after data yesterday showing faster-than-estimated economic growth boosted speculation the Federal Reserve will pare stimulus in coming months. France’s rating was lowered to AA from AA+ at S&P today. China’s exports climbed 5.6 percent in October, data today showed, before top party officials gather in Beijing from tomorrow for a policy meeting.
