Futures nicely higher ahead of jobs number


Stock index futures have decided the 8:30 ET jobs number will be a pleasing one, the S&P 500 +0.4% and Nasdaq 100 +0.6%.

Europe's up nearly 1% and Asia was little-changed overnight.

The 10-year Treasury yield is unchanged at 2.97%, and gold is up 0.3% to $1,232 per ounce. Crude oil takes a break from its steep slide, up 1% to $92.61.

    I wonder if this has anything to do w/POMO or is that not happening anymore?

    Many of the big gains in the S&P have taken place overnight in the futures market which I trade. They, whoever they might be, felt the economy needed additional wealth and lifted the futures market into the 40's which quickly vaporized after a less than anemic jobs reports of 74K.

    Just what we need, another cheerleading media player - 'nicely' higher. Where's the objectivity!

    Would anyone care to explain to we that don't know what it takes to participate in overnight trading. Not that I'm a candidate, but very curious.
