U.S. stock futures were up Friday, looking for the forth straight day of gains as investors are banking on Washington easing tariffs on Chinese goods. This comes on the heels of a Thursday report claiming US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was considering scaling back on said tariffs. The gains were not extraordinary, but the market surely is paying more attention to the positive than the negative news. Futures stayed bullish despite rising interest rates, 27 days of government shutdown, Tesla’s layoff announcement and a Netflix earnings miss.
Resistance is checking in at 265600 and 267500 with signs of support at 241050 and 238300.
