Futures are the firmest they've been this week, with postive earnings surprises seemingly far more frequent, and of greater magnitude, than the negative ones (see premarket gainers/losers). Treasury auctions $28B in seven-year notes at 1:00, the last of three massive sales this week. S&P +1% at 985.
