Sept 30 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures rose more than 1 percent on Wednesday, a day after the S&P 500 snapped a 5-day losing streak, ahead of key private sector employment data.

* The ADP National Employment Report, due at 8:15 a.m. ET (1215 GMT), is expected to show that private employers added 194,000 jobs in September, up from 190,000 in August. The more comprehensive non-farm payrolls data is due on Friday.

* The Federal Reserve, which kept interest rates unchanged earlier this month, has said it needs to see some more improvement in the labor market and be confident that inflation will increase before raising rates. Inflation remains below the Fed's 2 percent target.

* Fed Chair Janet Yellen is scheduled to speak at 3:00 p.m. ET at a conference in St. Louis, along with St. Louis Fed President James Bullard. Yellen said last week the central bank remained on track to raise rates this year.

* New York Fed President William Dudley is scheduled to speak before the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association in New York at 8:30 a.m.

* Global stock markets were on track on Wednesday to end their worst quarter in four years on a positive note.

* U.S. stocks mostly closed higher on Tuesday after nearing August lows, helped by a bounce in healthcare stocks.   Continuación...
