Ahead of the Bell
Apr 2 2014 | 8:15 AM

Ahead of the Bell: Dow futures are trading up 5 points and S&P futures are trading up 2 points. Global financial markets are on the rebound after faltering in the first quarter as sluggish economic growth in China and the threat of deflation in Europe are considered favorable conditions, bolstering the case for more stimulus.  Investors are speculating the European Central Bank will loosen its monetary policy after its meeting on Thursday.  However, traders remain cautious ahead of US jobs numbers on Friday which could also move markets significantly. Reports suggest China is speeding up infrastructure spending and several Chinese cities have relaxed restrictions on housing ownership. The geo-political tug-of-war over Ukraine appears to have calmed, but NATO is reinforcing its defenses in neighboring countries with Russia, which includes sending US fighter jets to Poland.

In Amsterdam the gong is sounded by Marjanka Hoogeweg and her Autism Assistance Dog, Creb (pronounce Sherp) together with representatives of the Dutch Autism Association, the Autism Fund and De Droomboom Foundation.
