US STOCKS-Futures up as China fears ease; US private jobs data eyed

* Futures rise: Dow 91 pts, S&P 11 pts, Nasdaq 23 pts

Sept 2 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures rose on Wednesday after fresh intervention from China to support its markets helped calm jittery investors, and ahead of U.S. private employment data.

* Private payrolls processor ADP is expected to report that private firms added more jobs in August than in July. The data, due at 8:15 a.m. ET (1215 GMT), will provide a snapshot of the labor market ahead of Friday’s critical non-farm payrolls data.

* Friday’s job numbers is the last monthly employment report before the U.S. Federal Reserve meets on Sept. 16-17, when an announcement on interest rates is widely expected.

* The U.S. central bank has said it will raise rates only when it sees a sustained recovery in the economy, with a key focus on labor and inflation.

* But the acute market volatility in the last few days has prompted investors to scale back bets that the Fed will delay raising rates as early as this month.

* Wall Street closed sharply lower on Tuesday, with renewed concerns about China’s economy pushing major indexes down almost 3 percent and intensifying fears of a long-term selloff.

* Chinese stocks on Wednesday bounced off from steep losses and ended almost flat as fresh supportive measures from brokerages eased investor fears that Beijing may be intensifying a crackdown on illegal margin financing.

* Many Chinese brokerages pledged additional funds to buy shares, answering government calls to support the stock market.

* U.S. factory orders data is expected at 10 a.m. ET. New orders for manufactured goods are expected to have increased 0.9 percent in July after rising 1.8 percent in June.

* Ambarella’s shares were down 11.5 percent at $79.35 premarket after the maker of chips for wearable and action cameras gave a third-quarter revenue forecast that largely fell short of estimates.

** GoPro, Ambarella’s key customer, was down 6.2 percent at $41.

Futures snapshot at 7:05 a.m. ET:

* S&P 500 e-minis were up 10.5 points, or 0.55 percent, with 274,916 contracts traded.

* Nasdaq 100 e-minis were up 22.75 points, or 0.55 percent, on volume of 43,978 contracts.

* Dow e-minis were up 91 points, or 0.57 percent, with 49,875 contracts changing hands. (Reporting by Tanya Agrawal in Bengaluru; Editing by Savio D‘Souza)
