Stock futures rise a day after market turbulence

May 7, 2010 6:49:00 AM - thestate.com
Stock futures are rising a day after one of the most volatile sessions in Wall Street history.

A computerized sell-off Thursday sent the Dow down by a record nearly 1,000 points before it was able to regain two-thirds of those losses. Stocks had already been trading lower on concerns about Greece's ongoing debt problems.

Market turbulence and European debt are overshadowing what is normally a big economic report domestically: the monthly jobs report. The Labor Department is expected to say employers added 200,000 jobs in April.

Dow Jones industrial average futures are up 51, or 0.5 percent, at 10,508. Standard & Poor's 500 index futures are up 6.50, or 0.6 percent, at 1,128.90, while Nasdaq 100 index futures are up 13.00, or 0.7 percent, at 1,899.00.
