U.S. Stock Index Futures Up Sharply

By Anonymous

Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average were up 288 points, or 1.1%, in early European trade Friday as global equities appeared set to attempt a bounce following this week’s U.S.-led drubbing.

S&P 500 futures rose 1%, while Nasdaq-100 futures were up 1.3%. Wall Street stocks ended sharply lower Thursday, a day after the Dow and S&P 500 posted their biggest one-day declines since February and the Nasdaq Composite saw its biggest slide since June 2016.
