- Stock futures add to gains after job growth in May increased slightly more than forecast; Dow and Nasdaq +0.3%, S&P +0.2%.
- The report provided no surprises, but traders said the rate of job creation offers further evidence that U.S. economic growth is on track; "good news is actually good news now in the marketplace," Wunderlich's Art Hogan says.
- European indexes continue to move broadly higher following yesterday's ECB decision to introduce additional easing measures, while the major Asian markets ended lower.
- BofA +0.2% premarket even after reports of talks with the Justice Department to pay at least $12B to settle civil probes into alleged handling of shoddy mortgages; shares had hit six-week highs yesterday.
- Perhaps surprisingly, Treasurys also rallied in reaction to the jobs data, with the 10-year note surging to a gain of 9 ticks and the yield down 4 bps at 2.55%.
