THIS IS IT!On this final, massive day of the year, US futures are higher than where they ended Friday.

That being said, stocks may still open lower, as futures are below where the market closed on Friday (remember, futures continued to tumble post-bell on Friday, as worst of a deal collapse continued to reverberate).

European markets are down, though they’re playing catchup to Friday.
