Futures up after earnings disappointment
U.S. futures were up forward of Friday’s opening bell, following a day when gain reports from high-profile companies such as McDonald’s and Caterpillar helped drive down bonds on Thursday.
Here’s where the vital marketplace indexes stand:
S&P 500: +0.1%
In Asia, earning outlooks in the U.S. resulted in a little markets falling: Japan’s Nikkei 225 was down 0.7%, whilst Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was down 1%. China’s Shanghai Composite Index rose 0.6%.
In Europe, Britain’s FTSE 100 stood at -0.01%, Germany’s DAX was -0.1% and France’s CAC 40 was +0.1%.
Amazon (AMZN) is the batch to watch Friday after it blew past Wall Street’s expectations for the second-quarter profits.
