Wall Street futures climb, brush aside allied missile attack on Syria

Wall Street

United States equity index futures hiked upon initial resumption of the financial market trading on Sunday after US, Britain and France launched missile attacks on Syria in retaliation to a suspected poison gas strike.

The increase implied that Wall street has been planning to pay no attention to the attack including Russian President Vladimir Putin’s distress signal that more Western strikes on Syria would result to further disorder of international affairs.

S&P 500 e-mini futures ESv1 were up at about 0.6 percent during the first few minutes of market trading on Sunday evening.

Futures trailing the Nasdaq Composite Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) increased in closely similar levels.

However, futures going after safe-haven US Treasury securities were at a slightly lower pace.

On another note, US stocks went down on Friday due to big banks’ failure to show a good impression as well as the increasing worries over the attacks in Syria, yet primary market benchmarks made up for their losses on the week.
