BoJ’s Benevolence May Help Markets Extend Rally
The major U.S. index futures are pointing to a sharply higher opening on Friday, with sentiment reflecting optimism over accommodative central bank stance after the Bank of Japan surprised the markets with an unexpected easing. The message seems to be going out loud and clear that central banks will not abandon the global economy which is recovering in fits and starts. Data released earlier in the day showed that U.S. personal income unexpectedly fell, while euro zone inflation quickened, although remaining well below the 2 percent target-all giving enough reasons for traders to remain invested in stocks.

10/31/2014 4:22:47 PM Stocks moved sharply higher over the course of the trading day on Friday following an unexpected monetary policy decision out of Japan. The gains on the day lifted the Dow and the S&P 500 to new record closing highs, while the Nasdaq reached its best closing level since 2000.
