After starting slowly, U.S. stock index futures were shooting higher late Sunday. As of 8:30 p.m. Eastern, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures
were up 126 points, or 0.5%, while S&P 500 futures
and Nasdaq-100 futures
were also up around the same percentages. Stocks rose Friday, and for the week the Dow
advanced 2.6%, the S&P 500
ended 3.5% higher while the Nasdaq
advanced 6%, as expectations for an economic bounce-back as businesses gradually reopen outweighed new data showing more than 20 million Americans lost their jobs in April amid coronavirus-related shutdowns.
