Wall Street's early rally faded in afternoon trading on Thursday as investors appeared to turn cautious ahead of a key US jobs report, which is expected to figure in the Federal Reserve's decision on when to lift interest rates. The market rose sharply earlier in the day after European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi hinted at more stimulus measures in the wake of lower oil prices, weaker growth in China and a strengthening euro.

Wall Street stocks jumped almost 2 percent on Wednesday in the latest volatile session as investors weighed the impact of a stumbling Chinese economy and global market turmoil on the Federal Reserve's impending decision about when to raise interest rates. US investors have weathered over two weeks of unusually wide-swinging trade that has left the S&P 500 with its worst monthly drop in three years and a loss of 8.5 percent from an all-time high in May.
Japanese stocks rose on Thursday as bargain hunters picked up shares which have been battered for weeks by fears of a China-led global slowdown. Overnight gains on Wall Street and a market holiday in China also helped support sentiment, but volatility remained high, suggesting investors remain on edge. The Nikkei share average edged up 0.5 percent to 18,182.39 points, snapping a three-day losing streak that knocked 5.4 percent off of the benchmark index by the end of trading on Wednesday.
UK shares had their biggest one-day gain in a week on Thursday, boosted by a commitment from ECB chief Mario Draghi to boost the central bank's asset-purchase programme if needed to offset the effects of a riskier economic backdrop. The FTSE 100 bluechip index was up 1.8 percent at 6,183.09 points at its close. "It looked to me as if (Draghi) was extremely dovish in his perception of the economic environment," said Jeremy Batstone-Carr, analyst at Charles Stanley.
European shares rose sharply on Thursday, extending earlier gains as the European Central Bank delivered a dovish message from its first meeting after weeks of market turmoil. Shares rallied as the euro fell after ECB President Mario Draghi cut inflation forecasts and said the bank was willing to adjust or extend its bond-buying programme of quantitative easing if necessary.
Indian shares rose more than 1 percent on Thursday, snapping their three straight sessions of losses, as investors bought beaten-down stocks while upbeat US markets overnight also improved sentiment. The benchmark BSE index gained 1.22 percent, while the broader NSE index rose 1.37 percent. Wall Street stocks jumped almost 2 percent on Wednesday in the latest volatile session as investors weighed the impact of a stumbling Chinese economy and global market turmoil on the Federal Reserve's impending decision about when to raise interest rates.
Sri Lankan shares closed slightly firmer on Thursday, snapping a three-session losing streak, amid concerns a rise in interest rates could turn investors away from stocks and into fixed income assets, brokers said. The main stock index ended 0.07 percent, or 5.11 points firmer, at 7,245.50, edging up from its lowest close since August 26 hit on Wednesday.
