Futures Swing Positive as Investors Digest News of Omicron In U.S.

U.S. stock futures traded higher on Thursday as the markets began to recover from the Omicron shock.

Late Wednesday, U.S. health authorities confirmed the first case of the new variant on U.S. soil. A traveler from South Africa tested positive, sending markets crashing down.

This morning, however, U.S. futures reversed course as DOW and S&P 500 recovered some of their losses. The tech-focused Nasdaq index, however, is still losing ground as investors worry about sky high tech valuations.

DOW Futures 34,214.00 152 0.45%
S&P 500 Futures 4,521.75 7.5 0.17%
