Nov 6 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures moved lower on Friday after data showed a bigger-than-expected rise in nonfarm payrolls in October, making it almost likely the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next month.

Non-farm payrolls increased by 271,000, compared with 142,000 in September and above the 180,000 that economists polled by Reuters had expected.
