US stock futures get a further boost from US sales-check out the Dow Jones now

Following the earlier boost to the Dow Jones futures after GS really beat the street with their Q1 earnings report, all the US stock market futures have lurched higher again. The catalyst for this has been the better than forecast rise in US retail sales. Whilst that data has lifted US bond yields markedly higher again, it has not yet dented the demand for stocks on the opening. So, all the major index futures are now higher and the Dow Jones is once more leading those gains. The index is now priced to reopen close to 38,300 a little later this afternoon
