US Futures Are Heading Higher

Stock market futures are moving up ahead of the U.S. trading session.

Dow futures are up 47 points.

S&P 500 futures are up 4.5 points.

Nasdaq futures are up 8.7 points.

This comes after yesterday’s ugly stock market sell-off.

Later this morning, we’ll get the initial jobless claims and Philly Fed manufacturing reports.  This will give us a sense of whether or not the economy is heading for another spring slowdown.

Here’s a look at Dow futures today.
