U.S. stock index futures were higher Tuesday morning as investors hope for better-than-expected earnings from a host of corporate giants in the coming days.
As of 5:00 a.m. ET, Dow futures were up 65 points and pointed to an implied open of around 83 points, while futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq also ticked higher.
Meanwhile, global stocks appeared to receive support from expectations that the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Federal Reserve could soon cut interest rates. The ECB is seen cutting rates by 10 basis points on Thursday, with the U.S. central bank expected to lower rates by 25 basis points at the end of the month.
