U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher on Wednesday morning, after Wall Street delivered its second best day of trade for 2019 in the previous session.
At 3:00 a.m. ET, Dow futures were up 34 points, pointing to a higher open of more than 43 points. Futures on S&P 500 and Nasdaq were higher too.
On Wednesday, stocks in the Asia-Pacific region climbed, building upon gains seen in the U.S., where the Dow Jones Industrial Average soared by more than 500 points and other stocks finished the session on a high. The uptick in trading came on the back of comments from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell who signaled that the central bank was open to easing monetary policy.
