The U.S. stock futures are up this morning looking to end the week on a good note after the market was down this week on record number COVID-19 cases.  The market had also been dealing with new stimulus concerns and the vaccine reports.  The U.S. coronavirus problem hit hard this week as new cases saw a record number of 150,000 on Wednesday alone.  This increase has led numerous states and municipalities imposing curfews and restrictions once again to help curtail the spread. Earnings also helped the market rally with Disney and Cisco leading the way.  Disney shares rose with the company announcing it now has 73 million paid subscribers for its streaming service, Disney+.  Cisco shares jumped 7% with of a strong report on earnings and revenue and better than expected prediction on the new quarter.

Support today is 350000 and 347500 with resistance showing 356700 and 360000.
