Stock futures up on hopes of Ukraine tensions easing
Gold, oil back off highs
MADRID (MarketWatch) — U.S. stock futures rallied early Tuesday, as appetite for riskier investments resurfaced after a report that Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered troops back to base after the completion of military exercises.
A lack of economic data meant it was likely to be another session spent closely watching the news ticker. Just one Federal Reserve official is on the speaking calendar.
In a reversal of what was seen in the early hours of Monday, futures for the S&P 500 index (GLC:SPH4) jumped 20.3 points, or 1.1%, to 1,863.40, while those for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (CBE:DJH4) rose 173 points, or 1%, to 16,320. Futures for the Nasdaq-100 index (GLC:NDH4) rallied 45.45 points, or 1.2%, to 3,713.75.
Media reports said Tuesday that Russian troops sent on surprise military exercises that began last Wednesday, some of which are near the border of Ukraine, have been ordered to return to their bases by March 7. International observers had become nervous over the exercises in central and western Russia because, as The Wall Street Journal noted , they have been used in the past as a cover for military action.
There were no reports of any movement of Russian troops within Crimea, and The Wall Street Journal reported that some Ukrainian troops had been issued ultimatums to hand in their weapons and defect to the Russian military. The ultimatum deadlines passed without incident, and Russia’s military has denied issuing such threats.
Markets added to gains as Putin was speaking to reporters. The Russian leader said his government was worried about radical extremists in Kiev, but would use military force in Ukraine only in an extreme case. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/stock-futures-up-on-hopes-of-ukraine-tensions-easing-2014-03-04?dist=beforebell
