  • There wasn't much movement for U.S. stock index futures overnight as traders held their breath after pushing the S&P 500 index to a closing high of 3,039.42 on Monday.
  • The rise was propelled by expectations of a third consecutive rate cut from the Federal Reserve, which has started a program to purchase $60B/month in Treasury bills until the end of 2019 and took the extraordinary action to shore up overnight liquidity starting in September.
  • Trade optimism is also in the air after the USTR said Washington will consider extending certain tariff exclusions on $34B worth of imports from China.
