Bullish Chinese Data, Upbeat Earnings Lifts Stock Futures Back Into Plus Side

Stock futures are higher this morning on upbeat Chinese manufacturing data and strong earnings from 3M ( MMM ) and Ford ( F ). Although gains in European equities were stifled by weak EU-zone manufacturing indices, the markets are all in positive territory, following the lead of their U.S. counterparts. Investors are not only encouraged by third-quarter earnings, but by the expectation that generous liquidity provided by the Fed will continue to fuel corporate growth, offsetting any detrimental impact from the government shutdown.
