Stocks set for more gains at open

|By:, SA News Editor

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.
