Stocks look for higher open as jobless claims fall

Stock futures are higher after weekly jobless claims fell more than expected and the European Central Bank announced no changes to its policy stance: Dow and Nasdaq +0.2%, S&P +0.3%.

The major European bourses trade mixed, while markets were pressured across most of Asia.

Today is the last busy day of the Q2 reporting period; of note, 21st Century Fox +6.7% premarket after beating earnings and revenue estimates, while Thoratec -26% after missing revenue estimates and lowering full-year guidance.

Treasury prices hold slim gains with the 10-year yield down one basis point at 2.46%.

Still ahead: EIA natural gas inventory, consumer credit.
