The Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) is looking to extend yesterday's upward momentum, with futures in the green ahead of the bell. "The Nasdaq Composite (COMP) led the market higher on Tuesday, gaining more than 69 points, or 1.6%," remarked Schaeffer's Senior Options Strategist Tony Venosa, CMT. "Meanwhile, the S&P 500 Index (SPX) closed at an all-time high. The risk-on trade seems to be coming back as we begin the new quarter, as consumer discretionary and technology names saw big moves yesterday. This morning, we'll get a sneak peek at Friday's nonfarm payrolls, with the Automatic Data Processing (ADP) payroll estimate for March due out."
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) are more than 8 points above breakeven.
