GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
* Nifty futures on the Singapore Exchange are 0.76 percent up and the MSCI-Asia Pacific index excluding Japan is 0.06 percent higher.
* Japanese shares rebounded strongly on Monday, tracking a rally in global equities following U.S. jobs data that was solid but not strong enough to cause worry about near-term tapering of the Federal Reserve's massive stimulus.
* The Dow shot up more than 200 points, scoring its best day since Jan. 2, and the S&P 500 ended a two-week losing streak on Friday after U.S. jobs data eased investors' worries that the Federal Reserve may be reducing its stimulus program in the near future.
FACTORS TO WATCH
*Indian rupee will be watched as it approaches a record low.
