NEW YORK —

Stock futures are edging higher in light trading, adding to last week's late rally on strong U.S. jobs numbers from November.

It was the final monthly jobs report of the year, though weekly jobs numbers will be released Thursday.

Dow Jones industrial futures are up 3 points to 16,016. S&P futures have gained 1.5 points to 1,806.50. Nasdaq futures are up 6.5 points to 3,510.50.

Trading could remain light due to apprehension over the potential winding down of the government's monthly $85 billion bond-buying program, with just over a week remaining before next meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve.

However, three Fed officials, Richard Fisher, Jeffrey Lacker and James Bullard, are expected to speak publicly Monday and markets are likely to be hanging on every word.
