Stocks set for more gains at open

  • Stock futures are poised to open higher amid a sizable global rally, with the Nikkei's 3% advance and Italy's 2% gain leading the way. Shanghai was marginally higher overnight amid a faster-than-expected GDP report, and the rest of the European indexes are ahead about 1%.
  • The 10-year Treasury yield is up by 2 basis points to 2.65% and gold is up a couple of dollars at $1,303 per ounce.
  • Later this morning we get housing starts, and this afternoon Janet Yellen speaks.
  • ETFs: SPY, QQQ, SH, DIA, SSO, SDS, PSQ, VOO, IVV, SPXU, UPRO, TQQQ, SPXL, QID, RSP, DOG, SQQQ, QLD, DXD, RWL, EPS, UDOW, SDOW, DDM, BXUB, QQEW, QQQE, TRND, SFLA, BXUC, QQXT, SPLX, BXDB, TNDQ

    The real reason futures are up.....

     

    "Economists expect Yellen to hammer home her dovish message when she speaks at 12:25 p.m. Eastern."
