Stock futures are on the rise this morning, following yesterday's massive selloff. Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) futures are up 170 points after suffering an 876-point drop on Monday, while S&P 500 Index (SPX) and Nasdaq-100 Index (NDX) futures rise as well. This morning's data showed the producer price index (PPI) increasing 10.8% year-over-year in May -- slightly smaller than anticipated, though remaining near its March record high of 11.5% -- and adding 0.8% for the month. The 10-year Treasury yield pulled back a bit after the results.
