Risk Appetite Perks Up Amid Positive Catalysts
The major U.S. index futures are pointing to a higher opening on Tuesday, with sentiment lifted by a couple of positive catalysts. China reported September GDP growth that was ahead of expectations. Earnings news has largely been mixed, with companies such as Apple and Travelers Companies beating expectations, while there were disappointments as well. Meanwhile, reports on a probable buying of corporate bonds by the European Central Bank in the secondary market have also generated some positive sentiment, which has triggered strong buying across the Atlantic

10/21/2014 4:21:46 PM Stocks moved sharply higher over the course of the trading day on Tuesday, extending the recovery from the sell-off seen in recent weeks. The Nasdaq and the S&P 500 closed higher for the fourth consecutive session but remain well off their mid-September highs.
